1 A song of ascents. From the deep water I cry out to you, O Lord. 2 O Lord, listen to me! Pay attention to my plea for mercy!
3 If you, O Lord, were to keep track of sins, O Lord, who could stand before you? 4 But you are willing to forgive, so that you might be honored.
5 I rely on the Lord, I rely on him with my whole being; I wait for his assuring word. 6 I yearn for the Lord, more than watchmen do for the morning, yes, more than watchmen do for the morning.
7 O Israel, hope in the Lord, for the Lord exhibits loyal love, and is more than willing to deliver. 8 He will deliver Israel from all the consequences of their sins.
