Tomorrow night is the beginning of Yom Kippur, when Jewish people all over the world ask forgiveness for their sins. Personally, I don’t really connect with the Jewish “religious” establishment. But to be humble enough to admit I’m not perfect, that I need forgiveness… I can relate to that. This song is built primarily from quotes from the Hebrew Bible.
Translation of Lyrics:
We’ve sinned against You, Lord; we’ve not done as You’ve commanded. Our love has grown cold; we’ve not walked in Your ways. And as we come to Your house, our hearts broken and humbled, restore unto us the joy of Your salvation. “Have mercy upon me, O God, according to your lovingkindness. According to the multitude of your tender mercies blot out my transgressions,” O Lord.
Based on Psalm 51:3,14,19 – Matthew 24:12 – Jeremiah 14:20 – 2 Chronicles 6:30-31
