Sons Of Korah Psalm 51 Lyrics
Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
blot out my transgressions
2 Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from all my sin.
3 For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is always before me.
4 Against you only have I sinned
and done what is evil in your sight,
so that you are proved right when you speak
and justified when you judge.
5 Surely I was sinful at birth;
Surely I was sinful at birth.
6 Surely you desire truth in the inward parts;
And you teach me wisdom,
wisdom in the innermost place.
7 With hyssop make me clean,
wash me whiter than snow.
8 Let me hear joy and gladness;
let the bones you have crushed rejoice.
Hide your face from my sins
and blot out all my iniquity.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from your presence, O LORD
and take not your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore unto me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
13 Then I will teach transgressors you ways
and sinners will turn back to you.
14 Save me from the guilt upon me,
LORD who saves me,
and my tongue will sing of your righteousness
O LORD the God who saves me.
15 Open up my lips,
and I will declare your praise.
16 You do not delight in sacrifices,
or surely I would bring it;
you do not take pleasure in offerings, O LORD
17 but the sacrifices of God are a
broken spirit and a contrite heart.
The LORD will never despise a broken spirit
and a contrite heart.
18 In your good pleasure make Zion prosper;
build up the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then there will be righteous sacrifices,
whole burnt offerings to delight you;
then bulls will be offered on your altar.
