A Song of the Ascents. From depths I have called Thee, Jehovah.
Lord, hearken to my voice, Thine ears are attentive to the voice of my supplications.
If iniquities Thou dost observe, O Lord, who doth stand?
But with Thee [is] forgiveness, that Thou mayest be feared.
I hoped [for] Jehovah -- hoped hath my soul, And for His word I have waited.
My soul [is] for the Lord, More than those watching for morning, Watching for morning!
