Create in me a clean heart, O God

  Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a right spirit within me.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from Thy presence;
Take not Thy holy Spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation;
And renew a right spirit within me.

Gail - we sing it in church often. It's a common hymn that can be found in most hymnals. It's Psalms 51:10.
