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.
