Psalm 130New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Prayer for Pardon and Mercy
1 A song of ascents.
Out of the depths I call to you, Lord;
2 Lord, hear my cry!
May your ears be attentive
to my cry for mercy.
3 If you, Lord, keep account of sins,
Lord, who can stand?
4 But with you is forgiveness
and so you are revered.
5 I wait for the Lord,
my soul waits
and I hope for his word.
6 My soul looks for the Lord
more than sentinels for daybreak.
More than sentinels for daybreak,
7 let Israel hope in the Lord,
For with the Lord is mercy,
with him is plenteous redemption,
8 And he will redeem Israel
from all its sins.
