"HAVE MERCY"

Verse 1
Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Thy loving kindness:
According unto the multitude of Thy tender mercies.
Blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.
For I acknowledged my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Chorus 1
Against Thee, Thee only, have I sinned,
And done this evil in Thy sight:
Make me to hear joy and gladness;
That the bones which Thou hast broken may rejoi-ce.

Verse 2
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Cast me not away from Thy presence;
O Lord, open Thou my lips; my mouth shall show forth Thy praise.
And my tongue shall sing aloud of Thy righteousness.
Chorus 2
Restore to me the joy of Thy salvation;
Uphold me with Thy free Spirit.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit:
A broken and contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise.

Chorus 3
Restore to me the joy of Thy salvation;
Uphold me with Thy free Spirit.
Make me to hear joy and gladness;
That the bones which Thou hast broken may rejoi-ce.
Ending
Have mercy upon me, O God.
Have mercy upon me, O God.
Have mercy upon me, O God.
Have mercy upon me, O God.
