Representative Text

1 LORD! from the deeps I cry to Thee!
2 My voice Lord do thou hear!
And to my supplications voice,
O give attentive ear!
3 Lord, who can stand, if thou, O JAH
shouldst mark iniquity?
4 But with Thee there forgiveness is
that feared thou may'st be.

5 Therefore for Thee, O LORD, I wait,
my soul still waits for Thee;
And on thy known and faithful word
I hope continually.
6 My soul looks out more for the Lord,
than watchers in the night;
Yea more than watchers wearied out,
look for the dawning light.

7 Let Isr'el then wait hopefully,
and on the LORD confide;
For boundless mercies with the LORD
continually reside:
8 Yea plenteous redemption is
eternally with him;
And Isr'el He from all their sins
will perfectly redeem.
