Psalm 130

Bible passage (Revised Standard Version)

A Song of Ascents.

130 Out of the depths I cry to thee, O Lord!
   2Lord, hear my voice!
Let thy ears be attentive
   to the voice of my supplications!

3If thou, O Lord, shouldst mark iniquities,
   Lord, who could stand?
4But there is forgiveness with thee,
   that thou mayest be feared.

5I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
   and in his word I hope;
6my soul waits for the Lord
   more than watchmen for the morning,
   more than watchmen for the morning.

7O Israel, hope in the Lord!
   For with the Lord there is steadfast love,
   and with him is plenteous redemption.
8And he will redeem Israel
   from all his iniquities.
