Create in me a clean heart, oh God
And renew a right spirit within me
Create in me a clean heart, oh God
And renew a right spirit within me

Cast me not away from Thy presence, oh Lord
And take not Thy holy spirit from me
Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation
And renew a right spirit within me


Create in me a clean heart, oh God
And renew a right spirit within me
Create in me a clean heart, oh God
And renew a right spirit within me

Cast me not away from Thy presence, oh Lord
Take not Thy holy spirit from me
Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation
And renew a right spirit within me

Create in me a clean heart, oh God
And renew a right spirit within me
Create in me a clean heart, oh God
And renew a right spirit within me

Cast me not away from Thy presence, oh Lord
Take not Thy holy spirit from me
Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation
And renew a right spirit within me

    Some people pray for god to clean their heart away from the dirt of sin they had made before but asking god to create a clean heart might means a heart transplant. A total change of heart, leaving/removing the old one and living the new one. Its not just a part of one's heart that will be cleaned but the whole old heart be taken away for god to be able to replace it with new one. Oh lord, give your people a heart transplant. Amen.

    When I am down, discouraged, lonely and confused. Singing this song will surely get you back in focus to god. This is a song and prayer of a believer, acknowledging our nothingness apart from god, our confessions to our unfaithfulness and sins. It's only by the cleansing power of god, his forgiveness, that we may experience the indwelling power of the holy spirit and hi joy. Bro. Julian "tong" carbonel.

    This has been my, probably the song I've been fallnig back on the last couple months. My dad did not hve any work the whole month of january, we were having a really hard time financially. But? At the begginning of february, he got carpentry work for a year! It's amazing how god provides and is faithful! And half-way through august it did not look like I was going to school, but just a week or two before school started somebody called my principal and payed the tuition off! God if faithful!

    There are times when we, I, are trapped in our own degrading thoughts and behaviors; for me, listening to "create in me a new heart o god... " is my constant prayer. Keith's version, especially when so many others in the audience are singing along, has just penetrated me so effectively; it seems to have opened me to the true healing power of the divine amongst and within us; I thank god that I found the url when I did. Blessings to all.

    The Lord saved me in 2004. He gave me a new heart. I am so glad and so thankful. He did so freely by His Grace(Ep. 2) He promised that He will save anyone who turn to Him by faith(John 3: 16) To anyone who need help, who want who want to be saved, to any one who need help, whatever is your problem I offer you this prayer: ' Lord Jesus I believe in you, I am just a
    sinner, come into my heart and save me. Amen' And He will.
