Newly added to the Christus Vincit Gradual!  Text is from Psalm 51 and taken from The Psalter of 1912.  While the first verse constitutes the Proper Offertory for Tuesday of II Lent, the text is very much handy for much of the Lenten Season.  The tune is aptly named New 51st (to go along with my series of hymntunes, New 25th and New 30th), and set in a nice somber mood (A minor).  This text could also be well-suited with Thomas Tallis' Third Mode Melody.
