From the depths of sin
if you do not hear the tune, click
From the depths of sin and sadness,
I have called unto the Lord.
Be not deaf to my poor pleading,
in your mercy, hear my voice.
If you, Lord, record our sinning,
who could then before you stand?
But with you there is forgiveness,
you shall ever be revered.
For the Lord my heart is waiting,
for God's word I hope and wait.
More than watchers wait for sunrise,
I am waiting for the Lord.
