A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.
We too come to a place before the Lord when our sin overwhelms us and we throw ourselves upon His mercy, just as David has done here. We too also know that no Other can blot out our iniquity and we crave His cleansing and His restoration and joy of His salvation. No sweeter sound than that of the Lord saying, “Come unto Me, my child, you are forgiven”. Nothing can cause us to worship God more than knowing we are truly His.
15 O Lord, open my lips,
And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
16 For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it;
You do not delight in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
A broken and a contrite heart—
These, O God, You will not despise.
