    Verse 1
    O Lord turn not Thy Face from me.
    Who lie in woefull state,
    Lamenting all my sinful life
    Before Thy mercy-gate

    Verse 2
    A gate that opens wide to those
    That do lament their sin;
    Shut not that gate against me Lord,
    But let me enter in

    Verse 3
    So come I to Thy mercy-gate,
    Where mercy doth abound;
    Imploring pardon for my sin,
    To heal my deadly wound

    Verse 4
    O Lord! I need not to repeat
    The comfort I would have;
    Thou knowest, Lord, before I ask,
    The blessing I do crave

    Verse 5
    Mercy, good Lord, mercy, I ask,
    This is the total sum;
    For mercy, Lord, is all my suit,
    Lord, let Thy mercy come!
