Psalm 51:14-17 (NIV):
Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
you who are God my Savior,
and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.
Open my lips, Lord,
and my mouth will declare your praise.
You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;
you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart
you, God, will not despise.
I could not write that even half as well. And I have a formal education.
When in doubt — worship.
I have been listening to Ven Ante Su Trono, which is the Spanish translation of O Come To The Altar by Elevation Worship.
I particularly find the Spanish lyrics powerful. My English translation of the Spanish translation of the English original version of the chorus is:
Come before His throne
The Father will receive you
With precious blood
Jesus washed away our iniquities
See what I mean?
