Pagina 194 - ... your justice. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall proclaim your praise. For you are not pleased with sacrifices; should I offer a holocaust, you would not accept it.

The Asperges is sung at the beginning of the Mass, when the priest sprinkles the people with holy water. Here, presumably, it is sung by the angels on the far bank. These lines are part of a longer prayer of repentance, in which David asks the Lord for mercy and forgiveness...
Pagina 194 - ... within me. Cast me not out from your presence, and your holy spirit take not from me.
