Lord, from the heart, and depth of woe

Lord, from the heart, and depth of woe

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Lord from the heart, and depth of woe,
My cry, to thee, I send.
2. Hear, Lord, my voice, and to my prayer,
O let thine ear attend.
3. Should'st thou, O Lord, observe our crimes,
Who could the trial bear ?
4. But there forgiveness is with thee,
That thou may'st be our fear.

5. My soul doth for Jehovah wait;
And I hope in his word.
6. No watchmen long for dawning light,
As my soul for the Lord.
7. Let Israel trust in God, the source
Of all redeeming grace;
8. Who will complete redemption grant,
And all their sins efface.
