Broken to Beautiful

Have mercy on me, O God,    according to your unfailing love;according to your great compassion    blot out my transgressions.2 Wash away all my iniquity    and cleanse me from my sin. 3 For I know my transgressions,    and my sin is always before me.4 Against you, you only, have I sinned    and done what is evil in your sight;so you are right in your verdict    and justified when you judge.5 Surely I was sinful at birth,    sinful from the time my mother conceived me.6 Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb;    you taught me wisdom in that secret place.
