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.
