Translation by Nicholas Brady (1659 - 1726) and by Nahum Tate (1652 - 1715)

O have mercy Lord, on me
Language: English  after the Latin 
O have mercy Lord, on me,
Thou art ever kind,
O, let me oppress'd with guilt,
Thy mercy find.
The joy Thy favor gives, 
Let me regain,
Thy free spirit's firm support
My fainting soul sustain.
