Out of the Depths I Cry, LORD

Out of the depths I cry, LORD.
O Lord, please hear my call.
Let your ears be attentive;
I beg for mercy, LORD.
If you marked our offenses,
O Lord, who then could stand?
But you grant us forgiveness;
therefore we stand in awe.

Lord, When You Came to Jordan


GENEVAN 130 was first published in the 1539 edition of the Genevan Psalter. The 1564 harmonization by Claude Goudimel (PHH 6) originally placed the melody in the tenor. GENEVAN 130 is a Dorian tune consisting of four long lines in which the rhythm of line 3 is a fitting contrast to the repeated rhythmic pattern of the other lines. Sing the first stanza in a subdued manner and the second stanza boldly, with bright, full organ registration. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook
