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
