Psalm 51


Create in me a clean heart, Oh God,

and renew a right spirit within me.

May my flesh be crucified...

so that YOU... others may see!


Please don't remove from me

 your presence, or Holy Spirit.

May I meditate upon your word...

and daily live it!


Restore unto me the joy

 of your salvation...

As I serve you with a deep

love and appreciation!


 I will teach sinners,

of your wondrous ways.

So that they my serve you

 all of their days!


I will shout aloud of your

 righteousness and proclaim

That you have delivered me

from all guilt and shame.


As my lips are open...

 I will sing glory & praise to YOU!

May you be exalted in all

that I say and do.


My sacrifice to you are a spirit

 and heart that's broken.

God will not reject me...

this he has spoken!


May I bring sacrifice and obedience

as I come to your altar.

You are my solid rock...

like the "Rock of Gibraltar!"


Thank you for cleansing

 and making me whole.

You brought healing...

and restored my soul!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
