A Clean Heart


Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Do not cast me away from Your presence,
and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.

Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
and uphold me by Your generous Spirit.

Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,
and sinners shall be converted to You.

Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed,
O God, the God of my salvation,
and my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.

O Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth shall show forth Your praise.

For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it;
You do not delight in burnt offering.

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
a broken and a contrite heart—
these, O God, You will not despise.

Psalm 51:10-17
