Have mercy, Lord, on me,
As Thou wert ever kind;
Let me, oppressed with loads of guilt,
Thy wonted mercy find.
Lord, wash away our guilt,
And cleanse us from our sin;
For we confess our wrongs, and see
How great our guilt has been.
Against you, Lord, alone,
And only in your sight
Have we transgressed; we stand condemned:
Your word is just and right.
Blot out our many sins,
Remove them from your view;
Clean hearts create for us, O God;
Our spirits now renew.
The joy your grace can give
Let us again obtain,
And may your Spirit’s strong support
Our contrite hearts sustain.
