Cleanse me with your healing balm, and I will be made clean, my heart will be purified;
Scour me, and I will sparkle like newly fallen snow.
Open my ears to joy and rejoicing;
Let my despairing and crushed body call out to you.
Do not look on my sins, my shame, and wipe away all my failings.
Create in me a pure heart, O God, rinse away all the detritus within me,
And renew my spirit, strengthen my soul, fortify my being.
