I featured God Be Merciful To Me years ago.
Here’s a retuned version by Keith and Kristyn Getty of this setting of Psalm 51.

The lyrics:
1.
God, be merciful to me,
On thy grace I rest my plea;
Plenteous in compassion Thou,
Blot out my transgressions now;
Wash me, make me pure within,
Cleanse, O cleanse me from my sin.
Wash me, make me pure within,
Cleanse, O cleanse me from my sin.
2
Broken, humbled to the dust
By thy wrath and judgment just,
Let my contrite heart rejoice
And in gladness hear Thy voice;
From my sins O hide Thy face,
Blot them out in boundless grace.
From my sins O hide Thy face,
Blot them out in boundless grace.
3
Gracious God, my heart renew,
Make my spirit right and true;
Cast me not away from Thee,
Let thy Spirit dwell in me;
Thy salvation’s joy impart,
Steadfast make my willing heart.
Thy salvation’s joy impart,
Steadfast make my willing heart.
4
Sinners then shall learn from me
And return, O God, to Thee;
Saviour, all my guilt remove,
And my tongue shall sing thy love;
Touch my silent lips, O Lord,
And my mouth shall praise accord.
Touch my silent lips, O Lord,
And my mouth shall praise accord.
