Ash Wednesday and Lent 133. With broken heart and contrite sigh

L.M.

Eisenach:

Johann Hermann Schein, 1628;

ad., harm., Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

Cornelius Elven, 1852

With broken heart and contrite sigh,

A trembling sinner, Lord, I cry:

Thy pardoning grace is rich and free:

O God, be merciful to me.

I smite upon my troubled breast,

With deep and conscious guilt oppressed;

Christ and his cross my only plea:

O God, be merciful to me.

Far off I stand with tearful eyes,

Nor dare uplift them to the skies;

But thou dost all my anguish see:

O God, be merciful to me.

Nor alms, nor deeds that I have done,

Can for a single sin atone;

To Calvary alone I flee:

O God, be merciful to me.

And when, redeemed from sin and hell,

With all the ransomed throng I dwell,

My raptured song shall ever be,

God has been merciful to me.

Amen.
