A song of ascents.
1 Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord;
2 Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
to my cry for mercy.
3 If you, Lord, kept a record of sins,
Lord, who could stand?
4 But with you there is forgiveness,
so that we can, with reverence, serve you.
5 I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
6 I wait for the Lord
more than watchmen wait for the morning,
more than watchmen wait for the morning.
7 Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
for with the Lord is unfailing love
and with him is full redemption.
8 He himself will redeem Israel
from all their sins.
This is a Psalm of ASCENT. It speaks of waiting to be lifted. Watching for His deliverance, watching for His mercy, crying out for His goodness. Hear me Lord when I cry for help, hear me Lord when I search for Your hand, hear me Lord when I can't take one more step. And then I wait. And while I wait I'll recount what I know to be true...You WILL hear me, the IS forgiveness, Your love NEVER fails and there is redemption. So while I wait Lord and hold fast to what I know is true, I will serve You. Thankful.
