Then the leader of the gang turns toward the Rainbow and starts to speak. He is on his knees. Here is what he said,
"Have mercy upon me , O God,
According to your lovingkindness,
According to the multitude of your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions.
I aknowlege my transgressions and they are ever before me.
Against you, You only, have I done evil in Your sight
Purge me and wash me,
Make me hear joy and gladness,
Hide Your face from my transgressions,
And blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit withn me.
Do not cast me away from your presence,
And put Your Spirit in me.
Uphold me by Your generous Spirit.
Then I will teach transgressors Your ways.
Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
And my tongue shall sing aloud of your rightiousness.
O Lord, open my lips,
And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
For You do not desire sarifice, or else I would give it;
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
A broken and contrite heart-
These You will not despise.
