O Lord consider my distress and now with




O Lord, consider my distress,
and now with speed some pity take,
My sins forgive, my faults redress,
good Lord, for thy great mercy's sake.


Wash me, O Lord, and make me clean
from this unjust mad sinful act,
And purify me once again
from this foul crime and bloody fact.


Remorse and sorrow do constrain
me to acknowledge my excess,
Because my sin doth still remain
before my face without release.


Against thee only have I sinned
and done this evil in thy sight;
And if I should no mercy find,
yet were thy judgments just and right,


It is too manifest, alas !
that first I Was conceived in sin;
Yea, of my mother so born was,
and yet, vile wretch, remain therein.


Also, behold, Lord, thou dost love
the inward truth of a pure heart;
Therefore thy wisdom from above
thou hast revealed me to convert,


If thou with hyssop purge this blot,
I shall be cleaner than the glass;
And if thou wash away my spot,
the snow in whiteness I shall pass.


Therefore O Lord such joy me send,
that I may praise thee with my voice,
And that my strength may now amend,
and broken bones also rejoice.


Turn back thy face and frowning ire,
for I have felt enough thine hand;
And purge my sins, I thee desire,
which do in number pass the sand.


Make new my heart within my breast,
and frame it to thy holy will;
And let thy Spirit in me rest,
Which may my soul with comfort fill
