1 My soul is sad and sinful;
O Father, hear me pray;
Take from my heart this burden,
And bear it far away.
Create in me a clean heart, O God;
renew a right spirit within me.
Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity;
cleanse me from my sin.
2 O cast my sins behind Thee,
Remember them no more;
Look on Thine own Anointed,
The Christ whom I adore. [Refrain]
3 Forgive, O loving Saviour,
My unbelief and sin;
My soul is waiting, longing,
Thy courts to enter in. [Refrain]
4 O give the oil of gladness,
Accept the gift I bring;
Then I will chant Thy praises,
Thy glory will I sing. [Refrain]Source: Sacred Songs No. 1: compiled and arranged for use in gospel meetings, Sunday schools, prayer meetings and other religious services #62
