Be Merciful, O Lord


Psalm 51 is prayed often during Lent, at the Liturgy of the Hours, at Reconciliation Services, and on other occasions throughout the liturgical year. Steve Angrisano shares the story behind his classic contemporary setting that has inspired generations of young people to humbly ask God for mercy and forgiveness.

Be merciful, O Lord.
Have mercy on us, for we have sinned.
We come before you; cleanse us from within.
You took my sin and my shame,
Have mercy on us, Lord.
