Verse 1
O lord hide not your face from him
Who lies down penitently,
Who is shedding tears for his sins
There, before Thy mercy seat.

Verse 2
Enter not to judgement with me
How much my sins may have been
Because I know this for certain
I am guilty before Thee.

Verse 3
You know everything about me
Before I confessed them all
Even the sins I now commit
Nothing is hid from Thy sight.

Verse 4
I make no vain repetitions
You know what my heart longs for
Before I ask, you have known it
I need mercy plenteously.

Verse 5
Mercy, Lord is what I plead for
Mercy is my greatest need
Therefore, Lord, I need Thy mercy
Grant that I be not denied.
