Miserere mei, Deus
Create in me a clean heart, O God, *
and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from your presence *
and take not your holy Spirit from me.
O give me the comfort of your help again *
and sustain me with your willing Spirit.
Then shall I teach your ways unto the wicked, *
and sinners shall return unto you.
Deliver me from blood-guilt, O God, the God of my salvation, *
and my tongue shall sing of your righteousness.
O Lord, open my lips, *
and my mouth shall show forth your praise.
