John S. B. Monsell, 1857

Sinful, sighing to be blest;
O Bound, and longing to be free;
Weary, waiting for my rest:
God be merciful to me.

2. Goodness I have none to plead,
Sinfulness in all I see,
I can only bring my need:
God be merciful to me.

3. Broken heart and downcast eyes
Dare not lift themselves to thee;
Yet thou canst interpret sighs:
God be merciful to me.

4. From this sinful heart of mine
To thy bosom I would flee:
I am not my own but thine:
God be merciful to me.

5. There is One beside the throne,
And my only hope and plea
Are in him, and him alone:
God be merciful to me.

6. He my cause will undertake,
My interpreter will be;
He's my all; and for his sake
God be merciful to me.
