Psalm 051

1    After thy loving-kindness, Lord,

          have mercy upon me:

     For thy compassions great, blot out

          all mine iniquity.

2    Me cleanse from sin, and throughly wash

          from mine iniquity:

3    For my transgressions I confess;

          my sin I ever see.

4   ‘Gainst thee, thee only, have I sinn’d,

          in thy sight done this ill;

     That when thou speak’st thou may’st be just,

          and clear in judging still.

5    Behold, I in iniquity

          was form’d the womb within;

     My mother also me conceiv’d

          in guiltiness and sin.

6    Behold, thou in the inward parts

          with truth delighted art;

     And wisdom thou shalt make me know

          within the hidden part.

7    Do thou with hyssop sprinkle me,

          I shall be cleansed so;

     Yea, wash thou me, and then I shall

          be whiter than the snow.

8    Of gladness and of joyfulness

          make me to hear the voice;

     That so these very bones which thou

          hast broken may rejoice.

9    All mine iniquities blot out,

          thy face hide from my sin.

10   Create a clean heart, Lord, renew

          a right sp’rit me within.

11   Cast me not from thy sight, nor take

          thy Holy Sp’rit away.

12   Restore me thy salvation’s joy;

          with thy free Sp’rit me stay.

13   Then will I teach thy ways unto

          those that transgressors be;

     And those that sinners are shall then

          be turned unto thee.

14   O God, of my salvation God,

          me from blood-guiltiness

     Set free; then shall my tongue aloud

          sing of thy righteousness.

15   My closed lips, O Lord, by thee

          let them be opened;

     Then shall thy praises by my mouth

          abroad be published.

16   For thou desir’st not sacrifice,

          else would I give it thee;

     Nor wilt thou with burnt-offering

          at all delighted be.

17   A broken spirit is to God

          a pleasing sacrifice:

     A broken and a contrite heart,

          Lord, thou wilt not despise.

18   Shew kindness, and do good, O Lord,

          to Sion, thine own hill:

     The walls of thy Jerusalem

          build up of thy good will.

19   Then righteous off ‘rings shall thee please,

          and off ‘rings burnt, which they

     With whole burnt-off ‘rings, and with calves,

          shall on thine altar lay.

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
