24th Sunday in Ordinary Time C: Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 51:3-4, 12-13, 17, 19

I will rise and go to my father.

Verse 1:

Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness;
   in the greatness of your compassion wipe out my offense.
Thoroughly wash me from my guilt
   and of my sin cleanse me.

Verse 2:

A clean heart create for me, O God,
   and a steadfast spirit renew within me.
Cast me not out from your presence,
   and your Holy Spirit take not from me.

Verse 3:

O LORD, open my lips,
   and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.
My sacrifice, O God, is a contrite spirit;
   a heart contrite and humbled, O God, you will not spurn.
