A pilgrimage song.
1I cry out to you from the depths, Lord—
2my Lord, listen to my voice!
Let your ears pay close attention to my request for mercy!
3If you kept track of sins, Lord—
my Lord, who would stand a chance?
4But forgiveness is with you—
that’s why you are honored.
5I hope, Lord.
My whole being#Or soul; also in 132:6 hopes,
and I wait for God’s promise.
6My whole being waits for my Lord—
more than the night watch waits for morning;
yes, more than the night watch waits for morning!
7Israel, wait for the Lord!
Because faithful love is with the Lord;
because great redemption is with our God!
8He is the one who will redeem Israel
from all its sin.
