1. O, have mercy God according to your steadfast love.
According to the richness of your tenderness and grace.
Wash me thoroughly from all of my iniquity.
Lord, take all of this sin from me, for against You I am wrong.
Let these bones that You have broken rejoice, rejoice!
Let me hear in joy and gladness Your voice, Your voice.
Create in me a clean heart, God. Renew Your spirit in me, God!
Cast me not away, O God. Restore to me Your joy!
2. Lord, my sins, I know. They seem to all before me go.
From me does naught but evil flow. I can’t escape the curse.
You are justified and blameless, Lord, if You decide
To judge me in my haughty pride, for I was born in sin.
3. But You shall wash me clean whiter than the snow I’ll be.
From bloody hands to purity, from darkness into light.
So, I’ll lift up my eyes and praise You with a heart contrite.
In me, again, You will delight, so open up my lips.
