O God of this new year that stretches before me,
teach me the secrets of wisdom.
Purify me with the hyssop until I am clean;
wash me until I am whiter than snow.

O God of this new year that beckons me,
create a clean heart in me,
put into me a new and constant spirit.

O God of this new year that holds out hope to me,
be my savior again, renew my joy,
keep my spirit steady and willing.

o God of this new year that gives me another chance,
in your great tenderness wipe away my faults;
wash me clean of my guild and purify me from my sin.
Instill some joy and gladness into me.
