From depths of despair I cry for help
Please hear my plea, I pray!
If You, O Lord, kept track of our sins
Then who, O Lord, could stand?
But, thankfully, You forgive our sins
That we may learn to fear.
I’m like a sentry waiting for dawn
While waiting for the Lord.
My soul does wait and hopes in Your word
My soul waits for the Lord.
O Israel, hope in the Lord your God
With Him is steadfast love.
He will redeem her from all her sins
