    Verse 1
    O Saviour, like the publican
    I lift my heart to Thee
    In Thy mercy and in Thy grace
    Be merciful to me

    Verse 2
    I smite, O Lord, my eager heart
    It's broken and in tears
    Lord deliver, my aching heart
    And have mercy on me

    Verse 3
    In shame, I confess all my sins
    Grant me, Thy hope, O Lord
    I plead because of Jesus' blood
    Be merciful to me

    Verse 4
    I am the chiefest of sinners
    Plentiful are my sins
    Because of the death of Jesus
    Come, have mercy on me

    Verse 5
    Beneath the cross of Christ I stand
    It's shadow, my delight
    And God whose mercy is boundless
    Has had mercy on me
