Ps 51:10–12 (Luther)
Schaffe in mir, Gott, ein rein Herz, und gib mir einen neuen, gewissen Geist.
Verwirf mich nicht von deinem Angesicht und nimm deinen heiligen Geist nicht von mir.
Tröste mich wieder mit deiner Hülfe, und der freudige Geist erhalte mich.

English.png English translation

Make me a clean heart, O God : and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from thy presence : and take not thy holy Spirit from me.
O give me the comfort of thy help again : and stablish me with thy free Spirit.

Ps 51:10–12 (King James V)
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me [with thy] free spirit.
