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.
