Kneeling, Pleading, Waiting

Full Text

1 Have mercy, Lord, on us,
For you are ever kind;
Though we have sinned before you, Lord,
Your mercy let us find.

2 Lord, wash away our guilt,
And cleanse us from our sin;
For we confess our wrongs, and see
How great our guilt has been.

3 The joy your grace can give,
Let us again obtain,
And may your Spirit’s firm support
Our spirits then sustain.
