‘Create in Me a Clean Heart’

Create in Me a Clean Heart is taken from Psalm 51–the Psalm David wrote when he repented the terrible sin he had committed in taking Uriah the Hittite’s wife, Bathsheba, and arranging for Uriah to be killed in battle: adultery plus murder. This is what the human heart does when it rebels against its Maker and Redeemer. And only God by Jesus Christ can cleanse it.

Performed by some of the kids at Fountainview Academy.

  1. Thank you, Lee. Not only is this hymn a special one, but these young people look genuinely joyful in Christ.

  2. A truly beautiful hymn. As part of the Liturgy of the Hours, we pray Psalm 51 every Friday morning, so it’s a psalm close to my heart.

    Can you find a good version of the hymn “We Have Come Into This House”? That’s another one I love. I’ve heard it done both slowly and allegro — your choice!
