1: A Song of the Ascents. From depths I have called Thee, Jehovah. 2: Lord, hearken to my voice, Thine ears are attentive to the voice of my supplications. 3: If iniquities Thou dost observe, O Lord, who doth stand? 4: But with Thee [is] forgiveness, that Thou mayest be feared. 5: I hoped [for] Jehovah -- hoped hath my soul, And for His word I have waited. 6: My soul [is] for the Lord, More than those watching for morning, Watching for morning! 7: Israel doth wait on Jehovah, For with Jehovah [is] kindness, And abundant with Him [is] redemption. 8: And He doth redeem Israel from all his iniquities!
