1. In Thy loving kindness, Lord, be merciful to me.
In compassion great, blot out all iniquity.
Wash me thoroughly from sin; from all guilt cleanse Thou me;
for transgressions I confess, sins I ever see.
2. 'Gainst Thee only have I sinned, done evil in Thy sight.
That Thou speaking may be just, and in judging right.
My iniquities blot out, my sin hide from Thy view;
And in me a clean heart make, spirit right renew.
3. From Thy gracious presence Lord O cast me not away;
And Thy Holy Spirit take not from me, I pray.
Joy which Thy salvation brings, again to me restore;
With Thy spirit free, do Thou keep me ever more.
4. Sacrifice dost Thou not want, else would I give it Thee;
And with offering shalt Thou not delighted be.
For a broken spirit is to God a sacrifice,
and a broken, contrite heart Thou wilt not despise.
