1 Have mercy upon me, O God: according to Thy lovingkindness.
2 According unto the multitude of Thy tender mercies: blot out my transgressions.
3 Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity: and cleanse me from my sin.
4 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
5 Against Thee, Thee only, have I sinned: and done this evil in Thy sight.
6 That Thou mightest be justified when Thou speakest: and be clear when Thou judgest.
7 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity: and in sin did my mother conceive me.
8 Behold Thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
9 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
10 Make me to hear joy and gladness: that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
11 Hide Thy face from my sins: and blot out all mine iniquities.
12 Create in me a clean heart O God: and renew a right spirit within me.
13 Cast me not away from Thy presence: and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.
14 Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation: and uphold me with Thy free Spirit.
`5 Then will I teach transgressors Thy ways: and sinners shall be converted unto Thee.
16 O Lord, open Thou my lips: and my mouth shall show forth Thy praise.
17 For Thou desirest not sacrifice else would I give it: Thou delightest not in burnt offerings.
18 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart O God, Thou wilt not despite.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end Amen.
