Psalm 51 (AD)

May 19, 2013


The only sacrifice you ever desired was done

On that rugged Cross by Your own holy Son.

In Your sight, I have sinned only against Thee.

The painful burden of that sin is ever with me.

If You took my life, it would be just and well.

You have every right to send my soul to Hell.

I plead for Your mercy to forgive my sin

And for the Blood to cleanse me within.

Purge me and make me whiter than snow.

With a clean heart, I’ll let others know

That they can be brought into Your fold

To walk in Your presence here, and on streets of gold.

In Thy good pleasure, restore joy in my heart.

Let not the power of Thy Spirit depart.

Keep me in Thy arms the rest of my days.

Forever, my mouth will show forth Thy praise.
