Original text and translations
1. Out of the depths we call to you,
Lord, hear our voices, heed our prayer;
Look with compassion on our plea,
Weigh our petition, Lord, with care.
2. For if you note each sinful deed,
Lord, who could stand when you appeared?
With you forgiveness will be found,
And therefore, Lord, you shall be feared.
3. More certainly than watchmen wait
To see the daylight first appear,
Do our souls wait upon the Lord;
We wait and trust in holy fear.
4. O Israel, wait upon the Lord,
For with the Lord is mercy found;
Who pardons us from all our sin,
In whom true liberty abounds.
