1 A broken heart, O Lord!
Thou never wilt despise;
'Tis written in thy word,
This is the sacrifice:
The sacrifice that thou wilt own--
It is the broken heart alone.

2 Break thou my heart, O Lord!
The rock within me break;
To tremble at thy word,
And at thine anger quake:
Let me in deep contrition lie,
And heave the penitential sigh.

3 For mercy dwells with thee--
Compassion, all divine;
That mercy show to me;
Be that compassion mine:
For sinners did not Jesus bleed?
And Jesus' blood alone I plead.
