1. Have mercy on me, O God, because of your loyal love!
          Because of your great compassion, wipe away my rebellious acts!
  2. Wash away my wrongdoing!
          Cleanse me of my sin!
  3. For I am aware of my rebellious acts;
          I am forever conscious of my sin.
  4. Against you — you above all — I have sinned;
          I have done what is evil in your sight.
    So you are just when you confront me;
          you are right when you condemn me.
  5. Look, I was guilty of sin from birth,
          a sinner the moment my mother conceived me.
  6. Look, you desire integrity in the inner man;
          you want me to possess wisdom.
  7. Sprinkle me with water and I will be pure;
          wash me and I will be whiter than snow.
  8. Grant me the ultimate joy of being forgiven!
          May the bones you crushed rejoice!
  9. Hide your face from my sins!
          Wipe away all my guilt!
  10. Create for me a pure heart, O God!
          Renew a resolute spirit within me!
