Psalm 51
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba
1 Have mercy upon me, O God,
According to Your lovingkindness;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I acknowledge my transgressions,
And my sin is always before me.
4 Against You, You only, have I sinned,
And done this evil in Your sight—
That You may be found just when You speak,[a]
And blameless when You judge.

5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
And in sin my mother conceived me.
6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.

7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me hear joy and gladness,
That the bones You have broken may rejoice.
9 Hide Your face from my sins,
And blot out all my iniquities.

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me away from Your presence,
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.

12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.
13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,
And sinners shall be converted to You.

14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
The God of my salvation,
And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
15 O Lord, open my lips,
And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
16 For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it;
You do not delight in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
A broken and a contrite heart—
These, O God, You will not despise

arguy, this is another one of my favorites. I tried to post the lyrics, but having a hard time with them.

There are certain phrases/words within the song that just "get to me".


"Don't want to end up where you found me".

"Today I feel like I'm just one mistake away from you leaving me this way."

"I can't stand to see the man I've been rising up in my again."


"Time and time again Your truth is drowned out from the storm I'm in."


"In the arms of Your mercy I find rest."

"I stand before you now as though I've never sinned."


Isn't God's mercy amazing! I recently felt "bashed" in another thread because of the term "born again". We Catholics don't use that term. However, I am "born again" everyday. Every day I die and rise again to my sin.


"I stand before you now as though I've never sinned."

Thanks,

just a snippit...
from audio adrenaline
Sometimes Im a liar sometimes Im a fake
Sometimes Im a hypocrite that everybody hates
Sometimes Im a poet sometimes Im a preacher
Sometimes I watch life go by sitting on the bleacher


i cant find the music anywhere on the net, youtube or anywhere..but this has got to be my favorite song..sometimes, well most of the time, its easier to forgive others than it is myself.

David had a heart after God, and I hope I do too because I like David am a real sinner. But when I'm in heaven, I expect God to say, "You barely made it," but because of what I do, hopefully he add, "Well done my good and faithful servant."

Some beautiful posts guys, thankyou.

In the brilliant light of Christ, my wretchedness is exposed.

Yet, he loves me.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound.....
