Song No #211 Thánh Ca Dân Chúa; English Missal
|Lời bài hát:||Lời dịch:|
Create in me a clean heart, O God, a clean
heart, O God, create in me.1.
O God, in your goodness have mercy on me.
In your compassion wipe out my offense.
Thoroughly wash me from my guilt, and
cleanse me from sins.2.
For I acknowledge my offense and my sin is
always before me; against only you have I
sinned, and done what is evil in your eyes.
Lạy Chúa, xin tạo trong con một tấm lòng
trong trắng, lạy Chúa, xin tạo trong con một
tấm lòng trong trắng.1.
Lạy Chúa, trong sự tốt lành của Ngài, xin xót
thương con. Mở lượng hải hà xoá tội con đã
phạm. Xin rửa con sạch hết lỗi lầm và tội lỗi
con xin Ngài thanh tẩy.2.
Vì con đắc tội với Ngài và tội lỗi luôn ở trước
mặt con; con lỗi tội với một mình Chúa và
dám làm điều dữ trái ánh mắt Ngài.

Tom Kendzia is well known as a composer, arranger, producer, teacher, clinician, author and performer. He has been a professional liturgical musician for more than 30 years.
Since 1980, Tom has appeared throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe at national and diocesan gatherings. He has been the music and worship director of the East Coast Conference for Religious Education since 2002. He has 15 collections of liturgical and instrumental music published by OCP, including The Ships That Sailed and Make Us One. Tom graduated from Manhattanville College in 1976 with a degree in piano and music education.
Currently, he is a music and liturgy consultant for Harcourt Religion Publishers and music director at Christ the King Catholic Church in Kingston, Rhode Island, where he lives with his wife, Mary Carol and two children. This composition is his setting of Psalm 51.
He wrote this setting with a “Celtic” spirit in mind. He was hearing Irish harp and flute in his head when working on it and ended up with a fiddle player for the recording. He had also intended that this be used throughout the season of Lent as the responsorial psalm. As in many of his works for church singing, the arrangement offers a choir a significant role in the performance of the piece within the liturgy. If a music director was to use this for all of Lent he would recommend the gradual build-up of the arrangement over the course of the 40 days, with the choir (if available) adding more of their parts as the season continues. He added the choir on verse four on the last Sunday of Lent.
Season of Lent, Ash Wednesday.
