Refrain: I will rise, I will rise and go to my father
Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness;
In the greatness of your compassion wipe out my offense.
Thoroughly wash me from my guilt
And of my sin cleanse me.
A clean heart create for me, O God,
And a steadfast spirit renew within me.
Cast me not out from your presence,
And your holy spirit take not from me.
O LORD, open my lips,
And my mouth shall proclaim your praise.
My sacrifice, O God, is a contrite spirit;
A heart contrite and humbled, O God, you will not spurn.
