Be Merciful to Me by Caedmon's Call

 

Out from the deep I call
To Thee, oh Lord, to Thee
Before Thy throne I fall
Be merciful to me

Be merciful to me
Be merciful to me
Through shadow dark and valley deep
Be merciful to me

From the garden to the cross
Thy mercy did endure
My soul purged from all dross
In blood made pure

Be merciful to me
Be merciful to me
Through shadow dark and valley deep
Be merciful to me

Thy mercy, Lord, is true
As ever truth will be
But still I cry for You
Be merciful to me

Be merciful to me
Be merciful to me
Through shadow dark and valley deep
Be merciful to me

Behind the Song:
"Psalm 130 begins, "Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O Lord." And this song agrees. Inspired by the first verse of an old Henry Baker Hymn, we will never be rid of the need of the fervent prayer David penned in Psalm 57, "Have mercy on me, O God."" - Caedmon's Call
