Psalm 51 is known as Miserere, because it begins with the words "Miserere mei, Deus". Many composers have made their own settings of the psalm, the most famous one may be the one by Gregorio Allegri.

What does 'misereri nobis' mean?

The phrase 'misereri nobis' means to have mercy on us. Latin has two similar verbs that both mean 'to commiserate', 'to have compassion on', or 'to pity'. This form, with the infinitive as 'misereri', has 'misereor' as the first person present indicative. The other form has 'misereo' as the first person; and 'miserere' as the infinitive and as the second person singular imperative. And this is the form that's known from its incorporation in the mass. The priest says, 'Agnus Dei qui tollis peccata mundi miserere nobis', which means 'Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us'. The congregation responds, 'Miserere nobis, Miserere nobis, Dona nobis pacem', which means 'Have mercy on us, Have mercy on us, Grant us peace'.
