Psalm 130

A pilgrimage song.

1 I cry out to you from the depths, LORD—
2 my Lord, listen to my voice! Let your ears pay close attention to my request for mercy!
3 If you kept track of sins, LORD— my Lord, who would stand a chance?
4 But forgiveness is with you— that's why you are honored.
5 I hope, LORD. My whole being hopes, and I wait for God's promise.
6 My whole being waits for my Lord— more than the night watch waits for morning; yes, more than the night watch waits for morning!
7 Israel, wait for the LORD! Because faithful love is with the LORD; because great redemption is with our God!
8 He is the one who will redeem Israel from all its sin.
