1. [Song of Ascents] From the depths I call to you, Yahweh:
2. Lord, hear my cry. Listen attentively to the sound of my pleading!
3. If you kept a record of our sins, Lord, who could stand their ground?
4. But with you is forgiveness, that you may be revered.
5. I rely, my whole being relies, Yahweh, on your promise.
6. My whole being hopes in the Lord, more than watchmen for daybreak; more than watchmen for daybreak
7. let Israel hope in Yahweh. For with Yahweh is faithful love, with him generous ransom;
8. and he will ransom Israel from all its sins.
