Have mercy, Lord, on me

Have mercy, Lord, on me,
as thou wert ever kind;
let me, oppressed with loads of guilt,
thy wonted mercy find.

Wash off my foul offense,
and cleanse me from my sin;
for I confess my crime, and see
how great my guilt has been.

The joy thy favor gives
let me again obtain,
and thy free Spirit's firm support
my fainting soul sustain.

To God the Father, Son
and Spirit glory be,
as 'twas, and is, and shall be so
to all eternity.
