Lord God, look upon me with mercy and love. In Your abundant compassion, blot out my sin. Wash away my guilt and make me clean. I know what I have done; my sin is always before me. Against You and You alone have I sinned, separating myself from Your merciful love. Cleanse my heart, O Lord; restore my spirit. Do not separate me from Your face, nor take from me Your Holy Spirit. Rather, return to me the gladness of Your salvation; uphold me with a willing spirit.
