O LORD, out of the depths I call to you.
O Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be open to my pleas for mercy.
O LORD, who would be able to stand if you kept a record of sins?
But with you there is forgiveness so that you can be feared.
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and with hope I wait for his word.
My soul waits for the LORD more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.
O Israel, put your hope in the LORD, because with the LORD there is mercy and with him there is unlimited forgiveness.
He will rescue Israel from all its sins.
