Out of the depths I cry out…
From the depths I call to you, Yahweh: Lord, hear my cry.
Listen attentively to the sound of my pleading!
If you kept a record of our sins, Lord, who could stand their ground?
But with you is forgiveness, that you may be revered.
I rely, my whole being relies, Yahweh, on your promise.
My whole being hopes in the Lord, more than watchmen for daybreak; more than watchmen for daybreak let Israel hope in Yahweh.
For with Yahweh is faithful love, with him generous ransom; and he will ransom Israel from all its sins.
