My Soul Waits for the Lord
A Song of #[See Ps. 120, title]Ascents.
1Out of #Ps. 69:2, 14; Lam. 3:55; Jonah 2:2the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
2O Lord, hear my voice!
Ps. 86:6; 2 Chr. 6:40 Let your ears be attentive
to #Ps. 140:6the voice of my pleas for mercy!
3If you, O Lord, should #[Ps. 90:8]; See Job 10:14 mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could #Ps. 76:7; Amos 2:15; Nah. 1:6; Mal. 3:2; Eph. 6:13; Rev. 6:17; [Ps. 143:2]stand?
4But with you there is #ver. 7; Isa. 55:7; Dan. 9:9; See Ps. 86:5, 15 forgiveness,
1 Kgs. 8:39, 40; Jer. 33:8, 9; [Rom. 2:4] that you may be feared.
5I #Ps. 40:1; Isa. 8:17; 26:8 wait for the Lord, #See Ps. 33:20 my soul waits,
and #Ps. 119:74, 81in his word I hope;
6my soul #[Ps. 123:2] waits for the Lord
more than #[Ps. 63:6; 119:147] watchmen for #See Ps. 5:3the morning,
more than watchmen for the morning.
7O Israel, #Ps. 131:3 hope in the Lord!
For #ver. 4with the Lord there is steadfast love,
and with him is plentiful redemption.
8And he will #Ps. 111:9; Luke 1:68; Titus 2:14; [Matt. 1:21]; See Ps. 25:22redeem Israel
from all his iniquities.
