Hymn #34: God be merciful to me

Change to large font

1. God be merciful to me;
on thy grace I rest my plea.
Plenteous in compassion thou,
blot out my transgressions now;
my transgressions I confess;
grief and guilt my soul oppress;
I have sinned against thy grace
and provoked thee to thy face.

2. Wash me, wash me pure within;
cleanse, oh cleanse me from my sin;
I confess thy judgements just;
speechless, I thy mercy trust.
Thou alone my Saviour art;
teach thy wisdom to my heart;
make me pure, thy grace bestow;
make me thus thy mercy know.

3. Gracious God, my heart renew,
make my spirit right and true;
from my sins oh hide thy face,
blot them out in boundless grace.
Cast me not away from thee:
let thy Spirit dwell in me;
thy salvation's joy impart;
steadfast make my willing heart.
