O God, Have Mercy (No. 18 from Mendelssohn’s “St. Paul”)
Words: Original German Text Taken from Scripture by Félix Mendelssohn with Pastor Julius Schubring
Music: O God, Have Mercy (No. 18 from Mendelssohn’s “St. Paul”) | Félix Mendelssohn
O God, have mercy upon me, and blot out my transgressions,
according to Thy loving kindness; yea, even for Thy mercy’s 
sake, deny me not. Cast me not away from Thy presence, and take 
not Thy Spirit from me, O Lord. Lord, a broken and a contrite 
heart is offered before Thee. I will speak of Thy salvation, I will 
teach transgressors, and all the sinners shall be converted unto Thee. 
Then open Thou my lips, Lord, and my mouth shall show forth Thy 
glorious praise.
