Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Psalm 51

Create in me a clean heart, O God

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

Refrain:
Create in me a clean heart, O God.

Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
blot out my wrong-doing.
Wash away all my offenses
and cleanse me from my sin. (Refrain)

Surely I was sinful at birth,
sinful from the time my mother conceived me.
Surely you desire truth in my heart;
you teach wisdom deep within me. (Refrain)

Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a faithful spirit within me.
Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and give me a willing spirit, to sustain me. (Refrain)

O Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth will declare your praise.
You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;
you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings;
but the sacrifice of a broken and humble spirit,
O God, you will not despise. (Refrain)
