A Song of Degrees
1 Out of the depths have I cried to thee, O Jehovah!
2 O Lord! hear my voice; Let thy ears be attentive to the voice of my prayers.
3 If iniquities thou shouldest mark, O God! O Lord! who shall stand?
4 For with thee is forgiveness that thou mayest be feared.
5 I have waited for Jehovah, waited hath my soul; And in his word have I hoped.
6 My soul [hath waited] for the Lord Before the watchers of the morning, the watchers of the morning.
7 But hope let Israel in Jehovah; For with Jehovah there is mercy, And with him there is plenteous redemption.
8 And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
