Have mercy, O God

Psalm 50

  • Refrain:
    Have mercy, O God,
    have mercy, O God
  1. Have mercy, O God, in your kindness,
    in love and compassion set me free,
    O wash me more and more from my guilt and my sin.
    O cleanse me, O God, O cleanse me, O God.
  2. A pure heart create for me, O God,
    your Spirit, O Lord, within my heart,
    your presence, O God, is my only desire.
    O heal me, O God, O heal me, O God.
  3. Salvation, the joy that you send to me,
    your presence and Spirit give me strength.
    Your glory and praise I will sing and proclaim.
    O save me, O God, O save me, O God.
