O GOD BE MERCIFUL TO ME




With broken heart and contrite sigh,
A trembling sinner, Lord, I cry.
Thy pardoning grace is rich and free,
O God, be merciful to me!


I smite upon my troubled breast,
With deep and conscious guilt oppressed:
Christ and His cross my only plea,
O God, be merciful to me!


Far off I stand with tearful eyes
Nor dare uplift them to the skies;
But Thou dost all my anguish see,
O God, be merciful to me!


Nor alms nor deeds that I have done
Can for a single sin atone.
To Calvary alone I flee,
O God, be merciful to me!


And when, redeemed from sin and hell,
With all the ransomed throng I dwell,
My raptured song shall ever be,
O God, be merciful to me!


---Alternative verses---


And when, redeemed from sin and hell,
With all the ransomed throng I dwell,
My raptured song shall ever be,
God has been merciful to me!
