1: A Song of degrees. Out of the depths have I cried to thee, O LORD. 2: Lord, hear my voice: let thy ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. 3: If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? 4: But [there is] forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared. 5: I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. 6: My soul [waiteth] for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: [I say], [more than] they that watch for the morning. 7: Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD [there is] mercy, and with him [is] plenteous redemption. 8: And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
