Have mercy on me, O God; according to Your unfailing love; according to Your great compassion, blot out my transgressions. (Psalm 51:1)
Search through my soul, O God.
Reveal my hidden sin.
Cut through my self-deception,
And cleanse me from within.
Apart from You our souls are lost.
We’re blind to our wrong ways.
We trick ourselves to walk a path that leads
to our disgrace.
So lead me on the path of life,
And purify my soul.
I kneel before You;
I give myself to You.
