Create In Me A Clean Heart

(Based on Psalms 51)

Written by Gilberto Barreto
Links to contributors: Gilberto Barreto, Alton Alexander

This wonderful song was written by Gilberto back in 1996. I created the original midi file at that time. In 2003 I added a new midi file by Denis Popopkin of Russia. Thanks Denis! - Elton, February 1, 2003


Make me know you, O Lord
In the depths of my soul.
Purify me and I will be clean.
Wash me whiter than snow.

Create in me a clean heart, O God
And renew your Spirit within me.
Create in me a clean heart, O God
And renew your Spirit within me.

The sacrifices acceptable to you,
O Lord, are a broken spirit.
A broken heart, a contrite heart,
O God, you will not despise.

Create in me a clean heart, O God
And renew your Spirit within me.
Create in me a clean heart, O God
And renew your Spirit within me.

Pieter Storm2011-02-16 O my Lord, You have indeed cleaned this heart of mine, and I thank You, Abba Father for renewing Your Holy Spirit in me.

maria2010-10-05After two years in church i still wasnt commited to god.One sunday they preached on psalm 51 as i sat there and listen i finally felt what it was to fear god. just to think that god has the power th cast us out.
we have to understand the power of god,he,s a loving god an understanding god ,an a forgiving god.That sunday made a complete change in my life the word was powerful but the song hit the spot. Create in me a clean heart.CAST ME NOT AWAY FROM YOR PRESENCE PLEASE DONT TAKE THE SPRIT FROM ME,AND RESTORE THE JOY OF SALVATION ,SO THAT I MAY WORSHIP THEE.

HBBrown2010-03-15We have a ministry at my church called "The Jesus Using Sisters Ministry." The theme for our monthly meeting of March is "Spring Clean Up" with the Biblical verse Psalm 51:10. I was on the Internet and came across this song. It is an inspiration.

Thank you so very, very much.

Cheron2009-12-14Thank you for composing a song based on Psalm 51:10 as this is my favourite text I was re-baptised on Sabbath and this text was read for me,and today I find this wonderful song. I will be learning it and hopefully I will sing it one day in church.
dexter2009-11-15A wonderful hymn/ song
Queen-Anne2009-10-30i was singing this song in the ladies room while at work today and i knew i just needed to googlesearch it to listen to the full thing. i had been having issues of my own which made me unable to commune effectivily with God. What the Holy Spirit ministered to me was this....''i need to have to everyday ask God to give me a heart like His to enable me worship Him....Ps 51: 10-12.
Thank God for a word in due season....
kishore2009-10-25A nice song beautifully sung

Daisy Rotino, Nairobi2009-08-22Amen, this is a wonderful song, it helps me reflect in my self.
2009-08-11This was a different song. The one I know has a verse that says: Cast me not away from thy presence oh Lord and renew a right spirit within me.
I checked CCLI and there are 43 songs with this exact title. That's a lot of songwriters using the same Psalm for inspiration! - Elton
Sabrina2009-08-11Praise to Our Lord Jesus for Adoration and Worshipping Him with all Our Soul and Bodies and mind and Hearts. Amen
Yvette2009-06-24I enjoy the song and your rendition of it. I would have liked to hear the melody line that matches the score you can print out and I would like to hear it in Russian so that I may participate with the worshipers there when I am on mission. Is there anyone who can sing the song in Russian?

2007-05-22my life was full of drugs and alcohol,every thing else that came with sin,including living in common-law for 13 yrs,tried to refine myself with counsellings, anger management..etc. my heart was a heap of dung hill! when I invited him to come in to my heart over a yr ago, He came in an open display of HIMSELF! every sin had to vacate from my heart. A pure Heart will see God! Matthew 5:8. It's a beautiful song!
Saul Mamakeesick2007-05-22My life was full of alcohol and drugs, every sin thing that came with it, and lived in common-law for 13yrs,tried to refine myself went for counsellings, anger management...etc.
My heart was a heap of dung hill, the stench of my heart affected people around me,over a year ago one morning 4:30am, I heard His voice
saying; "On a dunghill I will make my house" that morning I saw the condition of my heart it was a horrible sight! I fell on my knees and said' if you want this heart you can have it.Jesus came with an open display of Himself,every filth,every sin vacated,when He is Lord, Holiness and Righteousness becomes part of you,I love Him with all heart. Matt.5:8 "Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God". I Love the song! God Bless everyone of you,I'll see you soon!!!....with our first love.
2007-05-08A truly beautiful song with great music that I have introduced to my homechurch and we all love it. Thanks. Praise and glory be to Him.
