Original text and translations
HAVE mercy have on me, O God, according to thy great mercy.
And according to the multitude of thy tender mercies, blot out my iniquity.
Wash me yet more from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my iniquity, and my sin is always before me.
For behold thou hast loved truth.
Thou shalt sprinkle me with hyssop.
Thou shalt wash me.
Thou shalt give joy and gladness.
Thou wilt open my lips, and my mouth shall declare thy praise.
Turn away thy face from my sins.
Create a clean heart in me, O God.
Restore unto me the joy of thy of thy salvation, and strengthen me with a perfect spirit.
