1 (129-1) <A gradual canticle.> Out of the depths I have cried to thee, O Lord:
2 (129-2) Lord, hear my voice. Let thy ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.
3 (129-3) If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities: Lord, who shall stand it.
4 (129-4) For with thee there is merciful forgiveness: and by reason of thy law, I have waited for thee, O Lord. My soul hath relied on his word:
5 (129-5) my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
6 (129-6) From the morning watch even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord.
7 (129-7) Because with the Lord there is mercy: and with him plentiful redemption.
8 (129-8) And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
