Lyrics:
1.  Take pity, Lord, I pray Thee,
    Thy mercy show to me,
    My sins and my wrongdoing 
    I now confess to Thee;
    From all of my transgressions
    Thou, Lord, hast set me free,
    Thy blood so precious shedding
    Upon the cruel tree.

Refrain:
    Have mercy, Lord,
    A sinner cries to Thee,
    Have mercy, Lord,
    Have mercy, Lord, on me.

2.  O holy Lord Almighty,
    My need to Thee I bear,
    Although undone, unworthy,
    I pray Thee, hear my prayer;
    O Lamb for sinners wounded,
    Redeemer of mankind,
    Eternal life and pardon
    My soul in Thee doth find.
    (Refrain)

3.  Lord, willingly Thou gavest
    Thyself for all to die,
    And purchase full redemption
    For sinners such as I;
    O blessed be Thy name, Lord,
    Through all eternity
    For bearing shame and anguish
    Upon the cross for me.
    (Refrain)


1.  Señor, por tu clemencia,
    Tened de mí piedad,
    Delante tu presencia
    Confieso mi maldad;
    De todos mis pecados
    Me redimiste Tú
    Con sangre tan preciosa
    Vertida en la cruz.

Estribillo:
    Piedad, piedad,
    Te implora un pecador;
    Piedad, piedad,
    Piedad de mí Señor.

2.  Señor Omnipotente,
    Escucha mi oracion,
    Y sé a mi clemente,
    Indigno pecador;
    Cordero inmaculado,
    Divino Redentor,
    Tú eres quien me has dado
    La eterna salvación.
    (Estribillo)

3.  Señor, que en el Calvario
    Me diste redención,
    Muriendo voluntario
    Por mí, vil pecador;
    Bendito sea tu nombre
    Por la eternidad,
    Que agonizante fuiste,
    Señor, por mi maldad.
    (Estribillo)
