[a]Let me hear (A)joy and gladness,
Let the (B)bones You have broken rejoice.
(C)Hide Your face from my sins
And wipe out all my guilty deeds.

10 (D)Create [b]in me a (E)clean heart, God,
And renew 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 wrongdoers Your ways,
And sinners will [c]be (L)converted to You.

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