PSALM 130
METER:  CM (86 86)
SUGGESTED TUNE:  MARTYRDOM
This is the same meter as such hymns as "Alas! and Did My Savior Bleed" and "Amazing Grace."

1.  Out of the depths I cry to you;
    Lord, list-en to my cry.
    Let your ears be at-ten-tive to
    Me as I call for help.
2.  If you re-cord-ed all our sins,
    Who would not be con-demned?
    But, Lord, you are one who for-gives,
    So that we may o-bey.
3.  My soul waits for the help of God,
    And in his word I hope.
    I wait for him--yes, e-ven more
    Than watch-ers wait for morn.
4.  O Is-rael, hope in God the Lord,
    For stead-fast is his love,
    And plen-teous is his sav-ing might.
    He saves his own from sin.
