Psalm 51:12–15 (Listen)


12   Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
    and uphold me with a willing spirit.


13   Then I will teach transgressors your ways,
    and sinners will return to you.
14   Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God,
    O God of my salvation,
    and my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness.
15   O Lord, open my lips,
    and my mouth will declare your praise.

(ESV)

Hymn: TLH 392: Blest Is the Man Forever Blest

Hymnary.org Organ Audio



1. Blest is the man, forever blest, 
Whose guilt is pardoned by his God, 
Whose sins with sorrow are confessed 
And covered with his Savior’s blood. 

2. Blest is the man to whom the Lord 
Imputes not his iniquities; 
He pleads no merit of reward 
And not on works but grace relies. 

3. From guile his heart and lips are free; 
His humble joy, his holy fear, 
With deep repentance well agree 
And join to prove his faith sincere. 

4. How glorious is that righteousness 
That hides and cancels all his sins, 
While bright the evidence of grace 
Thro’ all his life appears and shines!
