Original text and translations
Have mercy upon me, O God,
after thy Great Goodness,
and according to the multitude of thy mercy,
do away mine offences.
O give me the Comfort of thy help again,
and Stablish me with thy free Spirit;
Cast me not away from thy presence,
and take not thy Holy Spirit from me.
Thou shalt open my lips, O Lord, and my mouth shall shew thy Praise;
Then shall I teach thy ways unto the wicked,
and sinners shall be converted un-to thee.
Then shall thou be pleased
with the Sacrifice of Righteousness,
with Burnt offerings and oblations,
and my tongue shall sing of thy righteousness.
The Sacrifice of God is a troubled Spirit,
a broken and Contrite heart,
O God, thou wilt not despise.
