During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Have Mercy on Me, O God

My offenses truly I know them

Tune: [My offenses truly I know them]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

Refrain:
Have mercy on me, O Lord, in your kindness.
In your compassion, blot out my offense.
Wash me, O God, from the stain of my guilt,
and cleanse me from my sin.

1 My offenses truly I know them.
My sin is always before me
Against you alone have I sinned.
What is evil in your sight I have done. [Refrain]

2 Create in me a pure heart;
put a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from your presence,
nor deprive me of your Spirit. [Refrain]

3 Defend me, O God, my Savior.
My tongue shall sing out your goodness.
O Lord, open my lips,
and m mouth shall proclaim your praise. [Refrain]
