1. Have mercy, Lord, on me,
As Thou wert ever kind;
Let me, oppressed with loads of guilt,
Thy wonted mercy find.
2. Wash off my foul offense,
And cleanse me from my sin;
For I confess my crimes, and see
How great my guilt has been.
3. The joy Thy favor gives
Let me again obtain,
And Thy free Spirit’s firm support
My fainting soul sustain.
4. To God the Father, Son,
And Spirit glory be,
As ’twas, and is, and shall be so
To all eternity.

Have mercy, Lord, on me. Tate & Brady, [Psalms li.] This S.M. rendering of Psalms 51 was given in the New Version, 1698 (q.v.), in 17 stanzas of 4 lines, divided into two parts, and is a good example cf the renderings therein in that metre. As found in modern hymn-books in Great Britain and America it is given in an abbreviated form of three or more stanzas, and often with a doxology also from the New Version. Few collections agree, however, in their selection of stanzas. The arrangement of stanzas as in Hymns Ancient & Modern, 1875, is in more extensive use than any other.
