Psalm 26 You Know My Heart

You know my heart, O God, and all its hidden caverns.
  I can open my whole self to myself and to you.
You know when I trust and when I falter.
  Where I walk faithfully, and where I fritter away my life.
You know how I fool myself, keep bad company,
   and protest my innocence.
May I come to you anyway?
  May I sing my thanksgivings and enjoy your worship?
Though I’m a long way from perfect
   a long way from mature, a long way from good,
You know my heart, O God—
  I would make it whole, open it to You,
and sing your praises.
