I hear a certain phrase a lot.‎ Are people saying ה' ירחם,‎ that השם should be merciful,‎ or ה' מרחם,‎ that השם is merciful?‎

  • Should be. When talking about something bad happening -- *may G-d have mercy that this not happen anymore!" – Shalom Nov 3 '20 at 18:14
  • @DoubleAA good point – ak0000 Nov 3 '20 at 18:24
  • @Shalom thanks! – ak0000 Nov 3 '20 at 18:25

I have always heard y'racheim. It's just an expression, so I doubt there are any sources available to quote.
