Original text and translations
Out of the depths have I cried to you, O Lord,
Lord, hear my voice
O let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplications.
If you, O Lord, should mark our iniquities,
Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with you,
that you may be feared.
I wait for the Lord, I wait for the Lord.
My soul waits, and in his word I hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
more than those who watch for the morning,
more than those who watch for the morning.
O Israel, hope in the Lord,
for with the Lord there is steadfast love and great power to redeem.
The Lord will redeem you, O Israel,
from all your iniquities.
