During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

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)
