Be gracious to me, O God
You are loving, compassionate.
You blot out sins.
You cleanse me from sins.
It is against You that I sin.
You are blameless when You judge.
We are all conceived in sin.
Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.
Create in me a clean heart.
Renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation.
Sustain me with a willing spirit.
Then I can help teach others Your ways.
They will turn to You.
Help me declare Your praise.
You do not delight in sacrifice or I would give it.
Your sacrifices are a broken spirit.
A broken and contrite heart, You like.
