A Prayer for Mercy
A song for going up to worship.
1Lord, I am in great trouble,
so I call out to you.
2Lord, hear my voice;
listen to my prayer for help.
3Lord, if you punished people for all their sins,
no one would be left, Lord.
4But you forgive us,
so you are respected.
5I wait for the Lord to help me,
and I trust his word.
6I wait for the Lord to help me
more than night watchmen wait for the dawn,
more than night watchmen wait for the dawn.
7People of Israel, put your hope in the Lord
because he is loving
and able to save.
8He will save Israel
from all their sins.
