1 From deep despair to you I call!
LORD, hear me when I cry!
O turn your ear to hear my voice
Which pleads with you on high!

2 O LORD, if you record our sins,
Who ever could be spared?
But mercy may be found with you,
That you may then be feared.

3 Now for the LORD my spirit waits,
My hope is in his word;
More than the watchmen wait for dawn
My soul waits for the LORD.

4 O Israel, hope in God the LORD!
His grace is full and free,
And pays the price to ransom us
From all iniquity.
