1 Out of the depths I cry to you, LORD;
2 Lord, hear my voice. ¶ Let your ears be attentive ¶ to my cry for mercy.
3 If you, LORD, kept a record of sins, ¶ Lord, who could stand?
4 But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you.
5 I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits, ¶ and in his word I put my hope.
6 I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, ¶ more than watchmen wait for the morning.
7 Israel, put your hope in the LORD, ¶ for with the LORD is unfailing love ¶ and with him is full redemption.
8 He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.
