Representative Text

1 From the depths do I invoke Thee,
Lord, to me incline Thy ear;
To my voice be Thou attentive,
And my supplication hear.

2 Lord, if Thou shouldst mark transgressions,
In Thy presence who shall stand?
But with Thee there is forgiveness,
That Thy Name may fear command.

3 For Jehovah I am waiting,
And my hope is in His word.
In His word of promise given;
Yea, my soul waits for the Lord.

4 For the Lord my soul is waiting
More than watchers in the night,
More than thy for morning watching,
Watching for the morning light.

5 Hope in God, ye waiting people;
Mercies great with Him abound;
With the Lord a full redemption
From the guilt of sin is found.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
