2 Out of the deep I cry,
The woeful deep of sin,
Of evil done in days gone by,
Of evil now within;

3 Out of the deep of fear
And dread of coming shame;
All night till morning watch is near
I plead the precious name.

4 Lord, there is mercy now,
As ever was, with Thee.
Before Thy throne of grace I bow;
Be merciful to me.
