1 Out of the depths I cry to you:
O Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive
when I for mercy plead.

2 If you recorded every sin,
O Lord, who could stand?
But with you is forgiveness,
and therefore you are feared.

3 Eagerly waiting for the Lord
I hope in his word;
watchmen look for the morning,
but my soul looks for God.

4 Great is his power to set us free;
his love never fails.
He alone will redeem us;
O Israel, hope in God!
