Out of the depths have I cried

Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O Lord!

Full Text

1 Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O Lord.
Lord, hear my voice:

2 Let Thine ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplications.

3 If Thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities,
O Lord, who shall stand?

4 But there is forgiveness with Thee
that Thou mayest be feared.

5 I wait for the Lord, mysoul doth wait,
and in His Word do I hope.

6 My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning:
I say, more than they that watch for the morning.

7 Let Israel hope in the Lord; for with the Lord there is mercy,
and with Him is plenteous redemption.

8 And He shall redeem Israe3l
from all his iniquities.

9 Glory be to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Ghost;

10 As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
