1 A Song of Ascents. Out of the depths I have cried to you, O Yahweh.
2 Lord, hear my voice: Let your ears be attentive To the voice of my supplications.
3 If you, Yah, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?
4 But there is forgiveness with you, That you may be feared.
5 I wait for Yahweh, my soul waits, And I hope in his word.
6 My soul [waits] for the Lord More than watchmen [wait] for the morning; [Yes, more than] watchmen for the morning.
7 O Israel, hope in Yahweh; For with Yahweh there is loving-kindness, And with him is plenteous redemption.
8 And he will redeem Israel From all his iniquities.
