Have mercy upon me, O God, according to your lovingkindness;
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
Renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation.
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 contrite heart-- these, O God, You will not despise.
--- excerpts from Psalms 51
