Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness: according to the multitude of Your tender mercies, blot out my transgressions.
Psalm 51:1 (KJV)
the only thing that draws the soul to seek the face of God is the loving-kindness of God, the multitude of his tender mercies. It is a look at Calvary; a sight of the face of Jesus which alone can draw our relapsing heart to cry, Have mercy upon me.
(R.M. McCheyne, 1841)
