PRAYER FOR MERCY




To God, in whom I trust,
I lift my heart and voice;
O let me not be put to shame,
nor let my foes rejoice.


Those who on thee rely,
let no disgrace attend;
Be that the shameful lot of such
as willfully offend.


To me thy truth impart,
and lead me in thy way;
For thou art he that brings me help,
on thee I wait all day.


Thy mercies and thy love,
O Lord, recall to mind;
And graciously continue still,
as thou were ever, kind.


Let all my youthful crimes
be blotted out by thee;
And, for thy wondrous goodness sake,
in mercy think on me.


His mercy and his truth
the righteous Lord displays,
In bringing wandering sinners home,
and teaching them his ways.


He those in justice guides
who his direction seek;
And in his sacred paths shall lead
the humble and the meek.


Through all the ways of God
both truth and mercy shine,
To such as with religious hearts
to his blest will incline.


---Alternative verses---


His goodness and his truth
the righteous Lord displays,
In bringing wand'ring sinners home,
and teaching them his ways.


He those in judgment guides
who his directions seek;
And in his sacred paths shall lead
the humble and the meek.


Thy mercies and thy love,
O Lord, recall to mind;
And graciously continue still,
as thou wert ever, kind.
