A Song of the Ascents. From depths I have called Thee, Jehovah.
Lord, hearken to my voice, Thine ears are attentive to the voice of my supplications.
If iniquities Thou dost observe, O Lord, who doth stand?
But with Thee `is' forgiveness, that Thou mayest be feared.
I hoped `for' Jehovah -- hoped hath my soul, And for His word I have waited.
My soul `is' for the Lord, More than those watching for morning, Watching for morning!
Israel doth wait on Jehovah, For with Jehovah `is' kindness, And abundant with Him `is' redemption.
And He doth redeem Israel from all his iniquities!
