    Verse 1
    Sinful, sighing to be blest;
    Bound, and longing to be free;
    Weary, waiting for my rest;
    God be merciful to me.

    Verse 2
    Goodness I have none to plead;
    Sinfulness in all I see,
    I can only bring my need;
    God be merciful to me.

    Verse 3
    Broken heart and downcast eyes
    Dare not lift themselves to thee;
    Yet Thou canst interpret sighs;
    God be merciful to me.

    Verse 4
    From this sinful heart of mine
    To Thy bosom I would flee;
    I am not my own but Thine;
    God be merciful to me.

    Verse 5
    There is One beside the Throne,
    And my only hope and plea
    Are in Him, and Him alone;
    God be merciful to me.

    Verse 6
    He my cause will undertake,
    My Interpreter will be;
    He's my all; and for His sake
    God be merciful to me.
