Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Psalm 51: Be Merciful, O Lord

Full Text

Spanish:
Refrain:
Misericordia, Señor, hemos pecado,
hemos pecado.

1 Misricordia, Dios mío, por tu bondad,
por tu inmensa compasión borra mi culpa;
lava del todo mi delito,
limpia mi pecado. [Refrain]

2 Pues yo reconozco mi culpa,
tengo siempre presente mi pecado:
congra ti, contra ti sólo perqué,
cometí la maldad que aborreces. [Refrain]

3 Oh Dios, crea en mí un corazón puro,
renuévame por dentro con espiritu firme;
no me arrojes lejos de tu rostro,
no me quites tu santo Exspiritu. [Refrain]

4 Devuélveme la alegría de tu salvación,
afiánzame con espíritu generoso.
Señor, me abrirás los labios,
y mi boca proclamará tu alabanza. [Refrain]

English:
Refrain:
Be merciful, O Lord, for we have sinned,
for we have sinned.

1 Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness;
in the greatness of your compassion wipe out my offense.
Thoroughly wash me from my guilt
and of my sin cleanse me.

2 For I acknowledge my offense,
and my sin is before me always:
"Against you only have I sinned,
and done what is evil in your sight."

3 A clean heart create for me, O God,
and a steadfast spirit renew within me.
Cast me not out from your presence,
and our Holy Spirit take not from me.

4 Give me back the joy of your salvation,
and a willing spirit sustain in me.
O Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.
