A Song of Ascents.
 Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD!
 O Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my pleas for mercy!
 If you, O LORD, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
 But with you there is forgiveness,
that you may be feared.
 I wait for the LORD, my soul waits,
and in his word I hope;
 my soul waits for the Lord
more than watchmen for the morning,
more than watchmen for the morning.
 O Israel, hope in the LORD!
For with the LORD there is steadfast love,
and with him is plentiful redemption.
 And he will redeem Israel
from all his iniquities.
