130
A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.
1Lord, I cry out to you
because I'm suffering so deeply.
2Lord, listen to me.
Pay attention to my cry for your favor.
3Lord, suppose you kept a record of sins.
Lord, who then wouldn't be found guilty?
4But you forgive.
So people have respect for you.
5With all my heart I wait for the Lord to help me.
I put my hope in his word.
6I wait for the Lord to help me.
I wait with more longing than those on guard duty wait for the morning.
I'll say it again.
I wait with more longing than those on guard duty wait for the morning.
7Israel , put your hope in the Lord,
because the Lord's love never fails.
He sets his people completely free.
8He himself will set Israel
free from all of their sins.
