From the depths do I invoke Thee,
O Jehovah, give an ear;
To my voice be Thou attentive,
And my supplication hear.
I am waiting, I am waiting,
And my hope is in His word;
I am waiting, ever waiting,
Yea, my soul waits for the Lord.
Lord, if Thou shouldst mark transgressions,
Who before the Thee, Lord, shall stand?
But with Thee there is forgiveness,
That Thy name may fear command.
Israel, hope thou in Jehovah,
Mercies great are found with Him;
He, abounding in redemption,
Israel will from sin redeem.
Psalm 130/Wilbur A. Christy
