1Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.
2Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!
3If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?
4But there is forgiveness with you, so that you may be revered.
5I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;
6my soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.
7O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is great power to redeem.
8It is he who will redeem Israel from all its iniquities.
(Psalm 130, NRSV)
My hope is in God’s Word!
Because I know when I cry out from the depths of the holes I find myself in, God will listen to my cries and come to my aid.
I know that Jesus is always near me and will always be there for me.
My hope is in God and I know that God’s promises are sure.
