Psalm 130

A song for those journeying to worship.

From the depths of disaster I appeal to You, O Eternal One:
Lord, hear my cry!
    Attune Your ears to my humble prayer!

If You, Eternal One, recorded each offense,
    Lord, who on earth could stand innocent?
But with You forgiveness exists;
    that’s why true respect of You might flow.

So I wait for the Eternal—my soul awaits rescue
    and I put my hope in His transforming word.
My soul waits for the Lord to break into the world
    more than night watchmen expect the break of day,
    even more than night watchmen expect the break of day.

O Israel, ground your hope in the Eternal.
    For in the Eternal lives the most loyal love,
    and with Him comes the most abundant redemption.
He will ransom Israel
    from all the sinful acts that stole you away.
