A pure heart create for me

Psalm 50

  • Refrain:
    A pure heart create for me, O God.
    (repeat after cantor)
  1. Have mercy on me, O God, in your kindness,
    in your compassion set me free.
    O wash me more and more and cleanse me,
    cleanse me.
  2. A pure heart create for me, Lord, in your kindness,
    a steadfast spirit within me.
    Draw me closer still to your presence,
    your presence.
  3. Open my lips for I sing your praise.
    My sacrifice a contrite spirit,
    a humble, contrite heart
    I offer to God.
