1 A new heart, Lord, create in me,
a heart from sin and guilt set free;
O close the gate and guard the door,
that sin may enter in no more.
2 To you my soul I open wide;
come, Jesus, and in me abide,
and from the temple of my heart
make all unrighteousness depart.
3 O let your Holy Spirit's light,
with all your heavenly radiance bright,
flow through my spirit like a flood,
eternal source of every good.
4 Thus to my cleansed and contrite heart
your heavenly riches, Lord, impart,
so that your wisdom, truth, and grace
may make my heart a fruitful place.
5 Then I will tell in grateful song
the praises that to you belong;
my joy will be, my whole life through,
to consecrate myself to you.
