Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.


This is the Day the Lord Hath Made (Arlington)

The Composed Song

1. Oh Thou God have mercy on me

‘Ccording to thy lovingkindness

Yea, ‘ccording to multitude of your mercy

Blot out my transgressions


2. Oh Thou God have mercy on me

Thou should thoroughly wash me

Even from mine iniquities

And from all my sins


3. Oh Thou God have mercy on me

‘Cause against thee alone

I have sinned against and have done

These evils in thy sight


4. Oh Thou God have mercy on me

Because it is even in sin

Hath my mother even conceived me

And was given birth to in ‘niquity


5. Oh Thou God have mercy on me

Because I have even confessed

All my transgressions unto Thee

Yea indeed all of my sins


6. Oh Thou God have mercy on me

Save me from guilt of blood

I shall also sing with my tongue

Aloud of your righteousness


7. Oh Thou God have mercy on me

Dip also thy hyssop

Even into thy precious blood

Use it to wash me clean


8. Oh Thou God have mercy on me

Come Thou and make me pure

It’s when thou hath e’en make me pure

And then I ‘ll even be pure


9. Then I ‘ll also be able to teach

Even those who are sinners

The path even of thy gospel

They ‘ll also turn unto thee
