Psalm 130
De profundis, Domine

Out of the depths I cry to Thee O Lord, Lord hear my voice!
Let Thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!
If thou, O Lord, shouldst mark iniquities,
Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with Thee, that Thou mayest be feared.

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in His word I hope;
my soul waits for the Lord
more than watchmen for the morning;
more than watchmen for the morning,
O Israel, hope in the Lord!
For with the Lord there is a steadfast love,
and with Him is plenteous redemption.
And He will redeem Israel from all iniquities.
— From the Office for the Dead
