51N. God, Be Merciful to Me

1 God, be merciful to me,
on your grace I rest my plea;
Wash me, make me pure within;
cleanse, O cleanse me from my sin.

Refrain:
God, be merciful to me,
on your grace I rest my plea.

2 My transgressions I confess;
grief and guilt my soul oppress.
I have sinned against your grace
and provoked you to your face. [Refrain]

3 I am evil, born in sin;
you desire truth within.
Make me pure, your mercy show,
wash me whiter than the snow. [Refrain]

4 Let my contrite heart rejoice
and in gladness hear your voice;
from my sins, O hide your face,
blot them out in boundless grace. [Refrain]

God, be merciful to me,
on your grace I rest my plea.
