140. Sinful, sighing to be blest

Four 7's

Clarence:

Arthur S. Sullivan, 1874

John S. B. Monsell, 1857

Sinful, sighing to be blest;

Bound, and longing to be free;

Weary, waiting for my rest:

God be merciful to me.

Goodness I have none to plead,

Sinfulness in all I see,

I can only bring my need:

God be merciful to me.

Broken heart and downcast eyes

Dare not lift themselves to thee;

Yet thou canst interpret sighs:

God be merciful to me.

From this sinful heart of mine

To thy bosom I would flee:

I am not my own but thine:

God be merciful to me.

There is One beside the throne,

And my only hope and plea

Are in him, and him alone:

God be merciful to me.

He my cause will undertake,

My interpreter will be;

He's my all; and for his sake

God be merciful to me.

Amen.
