Psalms 51:1-2

Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, when a  Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.

1 b  Have mercy on me,
Or Be gracious to me
O God,
according to your steadfast love;
according to your d  abundant mercy
e  blot out my transgressions.
2 f  Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
and g  cleanse me from my sin!

Psalms 143:1

My Soul Thirsts for You

A Psalm of David.

1 Hear my prayer, O  Lord;
h  give ear to my pleas for mercy!
In your i  faithfulness answer me, in your j  righteousness!

Psalms 143:7-9

7 k  Answer me quickly, O  Lord!
l  My spirit fails!
m  Hide not your face from me,
n  lest I be like those who go down to the pit.
8 o  Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
for in you I p  trust.
q  Make me know the way I should go,
r  for to you I lift up my soul.
9 s  Deliver me from my enemies, O  Lord!
I have fled to you for refuge.
