A Song of Degrees.

Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord.

Lord, hear my voice:

Let thine ears be attentive

To the voice of my supplications.

If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities,  

O Lord, who shall stand?

But there is forgiveness with thee,

That thou mayest be feared.

I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait,

And in his word do I hope.

My soul waiteth for the Lord

More than they that watch for the morning:

I say, more than they that watch for the morning.

Let Israel hope in the Lord:

For with the Lord there is mercy,

And with him is plenteous redemption.

And he shall redeem Israel

From all his iniquities.
