Have mercy on me, O Lord, in your kindness.
In your compassion, blot out my offense.
Wash me, O God, from the stain of my guilt,
and cleanse me from my sin.
1 My offenses truly I know them.
My sin is always before me
Against you alone have I sinned.
What is evil in your sight I have done. [Refrain]
2 Create in me a pure heart;
put a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from your presence,
nor deprive me of your Spirit. [Refrain]
3 Defend me, O God, my Savior.
My tongue shall sing out your goodness.
O Lord, open my lips,
and m mouth shall proclaim your praise. [Refrain]
