1 Lord, from the depths I call to you;
Lord, hear me from on high
And give attention to my voice
when I for mercy cry.
2 Lord in your presence who can stand,
if you our sins record?
But yet forgiveness is with you,
that we may fear you, lord
3 I wait -my soul waits - for the Lord;
my hope is in his word.
More than the watchman waits for dawn
my soul waits for the Lord.
4 Oh Israel put your hope in God,
for mercy is with him
And full Redemption from their sins;
his people he will redeem.
