From the depths I call to You, O Lord,
Listen to my cry
Lord, in compassion, listen to my pleading,
Listen to my cry,
If You refuse, Lord, to forgive your people’s sins,
We shall surely die.
So I am waiting, waiting for Him patiently,
Hoping in His word,
More than the watchman waiting for the dawn to come
I await the Lord.
So let us trust him, for in Him is mercy;
He the Lord, is kind.
He gives us pardon, generous redemption,
Casts our sins behind.
