1 Only one prayer today,
One earnest, tearful plea;
A litany from out the heart,
Have mercy, Lord, on me.

2 Although my sin is great,
Still to my God I flee:
Yes, I can dare look up, and say,
"Have mercy, Lord, on me.

3 Because of Jesus' cross,
And that unfathomed sea,
The crimson tide which laves the world,
Have mercy, Lord, on me.

4 No other Name than His,
My hope, my help may be;
Oh, by that one all-saving Name,
Have mercy, Lord, on me!

5 In garb of sorrow clad
I crave Thy pardon free;
In life to die, in death to live;
Have mercy, Lord, on me.
