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

    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

    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.

    It makes my day complete each time i hear this song.. Cos i know that god will answer us, for he loves us.. But in order to live life happily, we must also be able to do what is good for us and for others also. And we must love our lord god!
