Psalm 51: Be Merciful, O Lord

Representative Text

Spanish:
Refrain:
Misericordia, Señor, hemos pecado,
hemos pecado.

1 Misricordia, Dios mío, por tu bondad,
por tu inmensa compasión borra mi culpa;
lava del todo mi delito,
limpia mi pecado. [Refrain]

2 Pues yo reconozco mi culpa,
tengo siempre presente mi pecado:
congra ti, contra ti sólo perqué,
cometí la maldad que aborreces. [Refrain]

3 Oh Dios, crea en mí un corazón puro,
renuévame por dentro con espiritu firme;
no me arrojes lejos de tu rostro,
no me quites tu santo Exspiritu. [Refrain]

4 Devuélveme la alegría de tu salvación,
afiánzame con espíritu generoso.
Señor, me abrirás los labios,
y mi boca proclamará tu alabanza. [Refrain]

English:
Refrain:
Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned,
for we have sinned.

1 Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness;
in the greatness of your compassion wipe out my offense.
Thoroughly wash me from my guilt
and of my sin cleanse me.

2 For I acknowledge my offense,
and my sin is before me always:
"Against you only have I sinned,
and done what is evil in your sight."

3 A clean heart create for me, O God,
and a steadfast spirit renew within me.
Cast me not out from your presence,
and our Holy Spirit take not from me.

4 Give me back the joy of your salvation,
and a willing spirit sustain in me.
O Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.
