[a]Make me to hear (A)joy and gladness,
Let the (B)bones which You have broken rejoice.
(C)Hide Your face from my sins
And blot out all my iniquities.

10 (D)Create [b]in me a (E)clean heart, O God,
And renew [c]a (F)steadfast spirit within me.
11 (G)Do not cast me away from Your presence
And do not take Your (H)Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the (I)joy of Your salvation
And sustain me with a (J)willing spirit.
13 Then I will (K)teach transgressors Your ways,
And sinners will [d]be (L)converted to You.

14 Deliver me from (M)bloodguiltiness, O God, (N)the God of my salvation;
Then my (O)tongue will joyfully sing of Your righteousness.
