Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God
(2 Samuel 12:1–12)

1Haue mercy vpon me (o God) after thy goodnes, & acordinge vnto thy greate mercies, do awaye myne offences.

2Wash me well fro my wickednesse, & clense me fro my synne.

3For I knowlege my fautes, and my synne is euer before me.

4Agaynst the only, agaynst the haue I synned, and done euell in thy sight: that thou mightest be iustified in thy saynges, and shuldest ouercome when thou art iudged.

5Beholde, I was borne in wickednesse, and in synne hath my mother conceaued me.

6But lo, thou hast a pleasure in the treuth, and hast shewed me secrete wysdome.

7O reconcile me with Isope, and I shal be clene: wash thou me, and I shalbe whyter then snowe.

8Oh let me heare of ioye and gladnesse, that the bones which thou hast broken, maye reioyse.

9Turne thy face fro my synnes, and put out all my mysdedes.

10Make me a clene hert (o God) and renue a right sprete within me.

11Cast me not awaie from thy presence, and take not thy holy sprete fro me.

12O geue me the comforte of thy helpe agayne, and stablish me with thy fre sprete.

13Then shal I teach thy wayes vnto the wicked, that synners maye be conuerted vnto the.

14Delyuer me from bloudegyltynesse o God, thou that art the God of my health, that my tonge maye prayse thy rightuousnesse.

15Open my lippes (O LORDE) that my mouth maye shewe thy prayse.

16For yf thou haddest pleasure in sacrifice, I wolde geue it the: but thou delytest not in burntofferynges.

17The sacrifice of God is a troubled sprete, a broken and a cotrite hert (o God) shalt thou not despise.

18O be fauorable and gracious vnto Sion, that the walles of Ierusalem maye be buylded.

19For then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifice of rightuousnesse, with the burntofferynges and oblacions: then shal they laye bullockes vpon thine aulter.
