PSALM li. (Paraphrase.) O GOD, have mercy upon me, according to Thy loving-kindness, and wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse, O cleanse me from my sin. For I confess mine iniquity, my grievous sin is ever before me. Against Thee only have I transgressed and done so evilly. Behold, in sin I was created, and in iniquity I was conceived. But Thou desirest truth in the inmost heart, and wisdom Thou wilt give to me. With hyssop purge me, I shall be clean; wash me, and then I shall be whiter than snow. And from Thy presence O cast me not away; Thy Holy Spirit take not from me. Restore to me the joy of Thy salvation, and with Thy Spirit free, do Thou uphold me evermore. And then, transgressors shall learn of me Thy righteous ways, and sinners thus shall be converted, LORD, unto Thee. My lips, O LORD, do Thou open, and my mouth shall shew forth Thy praise. Sacrifice Thou desirest not, else would I offer it. The sacrifices of GOD are a broken spirit; a broken spirit and a contrite heart, O GOD, Thou will not despise. My lips, O LORD, do Thou open, and my mouth shall shew forth Thy praise. CALKIN.
