1Out of the depths I cry to You,
O Lord, now hear my voice!
2Let Your ears be attentive to
my cry for mercy voiced.
3If You, O Lord, recorded sins,
Then who, O Lord, could stand?
4But with You there’s forgiveness, and
therefore, we fear Your hand.
5I wait, my soul waits for the Lord;
His word’s my hope and stay.
6My soul waits for the Lord more than
the watchmen wait for day.
Yes, more than watchmen wait for morn,
I wait for God above.
7O Is-ra-el, put hope in this—
The Lord’s unfailing love.
For with the Lord is steadfast love,
Redemption full and free;
8For He will redeem Is-ra-el,
From all iniquity.
