Psalm 51 (Have Mercy, Lord)

SAB anthem with piano Level: medium/easy Performance time: 3:06 Word adaptation by Flora Litt, music by David Kai

Have mercy Lord, and in your love, cleanse me from all my guilt.

For I can see the wrong I've done; I'm conscious of my sin.

Lord you are right in judging me; truth is what you require.

Teach me, O God, and fill my mind, Your wisdom I desire.

Remove the shadows from my soul and make me clean as the snow.

Let gladness break into my heart that all your joy I may know.

Create in me a pure heart, Lord, a new right spirit within.

Help me be willing to obey and in your presence live.

Remove the shadows from my soul and make me clean as the snow.

Let gladness break into my heart that all your joy I may know.

Submissive now I come, O God, a song of thanks I raise.

Lord, take my lips, my heart my life, and fill me with your praise,

and fill me with your praise.
