1 From the very depths I cry:
Lord, hear my voice,
in your mercy, pass not by,
Lord, hear my voice;
let your ears consider well,
Lord, the hope of Israel,
save my soul from utmost hell.
Lord, hear my voice!

2 In your word I put my trust:
Lord, hear my voice.
lift my spirit from the dust,
Lord, hear my voice;
prayer awakens with the dawning,
from the watch before the morning:
always patient, never scorning
Lord, hear my voice!
