“Father of all mercies,
who delightest not in the death of a sinner,
have compassion upon us,
and wash us from all our sins
that we have committed against Thy holy Majesty
since the time we first came into this world.
Create in us a clean heart,
and strengthen us continually with the power of Thy Holy Spirit,
that we, being truly consecrated to Thy service,
may set forth Thy praises,
through Jesus Christ, our Saviour.
–“Psalm 51” in Prayers on the Psalms From the Scottish Psalter of 1595 (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 2010), 75.
