570. From the depths my prayer ascendeth

1 From the depths my prayer ascendeth
Unto God on high;
Hear, O Lord, my supplication
And my cry.

2 None can stand unscathed and blameless
In thy judgment just,
But the contrite in thy mercy
Humbly trust.

3 Lord, my hope is in thy promise,
And I wait for thee
More than they who watch for morning,
Light to see.

4 With the Lord is tender mercy,
And redeeming love;
Israel, look for full salvation
From above.

Amen.
