A few posts ago, we shared an impromptu moment of a Christian and a Jew playing a song about Psalm 51 on the top of Mount Zion near the Tomb of David.

Leslie Howard has now provided us with a studio recording of the same piece of music and the lyrics down below.

We hope you enjoy this.  Warning — it is catchy!

 

CLEANSE ME WITH HYSSOP  (Based on Psalm 51)

Almighty God, have mercy on me

According to your loving kindness

All my transgressions are there before me

All my sin is in your sight

You are justified when you speak

You are righteous when you judge me

Now with your hyssop, sprinkle me

And I will be clean, whiter than snow

Almighty God , my deliverer

I’ll sing the praises of your justice

Open up my lips that my mouth

May proclaim all your praises

Create in me a pure heart

Renew in me a steadfast spirit

Do not cast me from your presence

Or take away Your Holy Spirit

Restore to me the joy of salvation

And uphold me with Your spirit

That I might teach transgressors Your ways

And sinners will return to You

My sacrifice is a contrite heart

A wounded spirit , you’ll not despise

You build anew , the walls of Jerusalem

And in Your pleasure , you prosper Zion

Almighty God , my deliverer

I’ll sing the praises of your justice

Open up my lips that my mouth

May proclaim all your praises

Almighty God, have mercy on me

According to your loving kindness

your loving kindness x 4
