From the depths of my despair I call to you, Lord.
Hear my cry, O Lord; listen to my call for help!
If you kept a record of our sins, who could escape being condemned?
But you forgive us, so that we should stand in awe of you.
I wait eagerly for the Lord's help, and in his word I trust.
I wait for the Lord more eagerly than sentries wait for the dawn - than sentries wait for the dawn.
Israel, trust in the Lord, because his love is constant and he is always willing to save.
He will save his people Israel 1 from all their sins.
