When you look for this song, you find a couple of different versions.
This version, by Acappella, is the one I knew first. I sure do like it. It is what always comes to mind when I read Psalm 51:10.
This second version is one I heard just a while back. I like it, as well, but don’t know it all yet. It is one that our teens sing. Of course, we don’t use the instruments but the words are a plea to God, Himself, to wash us clean and that is what we need – to be washed and found clean through the gift of redemption He gives.
What a plea – create in me a clean heart O, God! Renew me!
I plead that for myself and that the desire will also be found in my children’s hearts as they grow.
