Hymn/Song Information

HIDE THY FACE FROM MY SIN




Have mercy on me, O my God!
In loving-kindness hear my prayer;
Withdraw the terror of thy rod;
Lord! in thy tender mercy, spare.


Offences rise where’er I look;
But I confess their guilt to Thee:
Blot my transgressions from thy book,
Cleanse me from all iniquity.


Whither from vengeance can I run?
Just are thy judgements, Lord, and right:
For all the evil I have done,
I did it only in thy sight.


Shapen in frailty, born of sin,
From error how shall I depart?
Lo, thou requirest truth within;
Lord! write thy truth upon my heart.


Me through the blood of sprinkling make
Pure from defilement, white as snow;
Heal me for my Redeemer’s sake;
Then joy and gladness I shall know.


A perfect heart in me create,
Renew my soul in innocence;
Cast not the suppliant from thy gate,
Nor take thine holy Spirit hence.


Thy consolations, as of old,
Now to my troubled mind restore;
By thy free Spirit’s might uphold
And guide my steps, to fall no more.


Then sinners will I teach thy ways,
And rebels to thy sceptre bring;
—Open my lips, O God! in praise,
So shall my mouth thy goodness sing.


Not streaming blood, nor purging fire,
Thy righteous anger can appease;
Burnt-offerings thou dost nor require,
Or gladly I would render these.


The broken heart in sacrifice,
Alone may thine acceptance meet;
My heart, O God! do no despise,
Broken and contrite, at thy feet.


---Alternative verses---


Offences rise where’er I look;
But I confess their guilt to Thee:
Blot my transgressions from thy book,
Cleanse me from mine iniquity.


Not streaming blood nor cleansing fire
Thy seeming anger can appease;
Burnt-offerings thou dost not require,
Or gladly I would render these.


The broken heart in sacrifice,
Alone will thine acceptance meet;
My heart, O God! do no despise,
Abased and contrite, at thy feet.
