From the depths of my despair I call to you, Lord.
Hear my cry, O Lord; listen to my call for help!
If you kept a record of our sins,
who could escape being condemned?
But you forgive us, so that we should stand in awe of you
I wait eagerly for the Lord´s help, and in his word I trust.
I wait for the Lord more eagerly
than watchmen wait for the dawn.
Israel, trust in the Lord,
because his love ist constant
and he is always willing to save.
He will save his people Israel from all their sins.
