July 1, Psalms 130, Lord, Hear My Voice!

1Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord.

2Lord, hear my voice!

Let Your ears be attentive

To the voice of my supplications.

3If You, Lord, should mark iniquities,

O Lord, who could stand?

4But there is forgiveness with You,

That You may be feared.

5I wait for the Lord, my soul does wait,

And in His word do I hope.

6My soul waits for the Lord

More than the watchmen for the morning;

Indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning.

7O Israel, hope in the Lord;

For with the Lord there is lovingkindness,

And with Him is abundant redemption.

8And He will redeem Israel

From all his iniquities.
