Cast me not away from thy presence (1848)

Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which hast broken may rejoice.

Words: Psalm 51 vv. 11, 12, 17, 8
Music: Samuel Sebastian Wesley (1810–76)
