I think the above merge command is reversed?

it should be:

  svn merge .../current .../initial-rev

If you didn't do "svn commit" , then you can simply issue "svn revert"

If you have already committed your merge, you can use merge again to
undo changes.

The subversion book describes it quite well, see:
