    Psalm 130

    A pilgrimage song.

    130 I cry out to you from the depths, Lord
    my Lord, listen to my voice!
        Let your ears pay close attention to my request for mercy!
    If you kept track of sins, Lord
        my Lord, who would stand a chance?
    But forgiveness is with you—
        that’s why you are honored.

    I hope, Lord.
    My whole being hopes,
        and I wait for God’s promise.
    My whole being waits for my Lord—
        more than the night watch waits for morning;
        yes, more than the night watch waits for morning!

    Israel, wait for the Lord!
        Because faithful love is with the Lord;
        because great redemption is with our God!
    He is the one who will redeem Israel
        from all its sin.
