1Out of the depths I cry to You,
2O Lord, now hear my voice!
Let 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 forgiveness is –
Therefore, we fear Your hand.
5I wait for God, my soul does wait;
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 Israel, put hope in this:
The Lord’s unfailing love.
For with the Lord is steadfast love,
Redemption full and free;
8For He will redeem Israel,
From all iniquity.
