I Cry to You Lord

Psalm 130

A Song of Ascents.
1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.
2   Lord, hear my voice!

Let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplications!

3 If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,

Lord, who could stand?
4 But there is forgiveness with you,
so that you may be revered.

5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in his word I hope;
6 my soul waits for the Lord
more than those who watch for the morning,
more than those who watch for the morning.

7 O Israel, hope in the Lord!
For with the Lord there is steadfast love,
and with him is great power to redeem.
8 It is he who will redeem Israel
from all its iniquities.


Prayer Thought

Lord, I believe that you hear me in my distress. Come to my aid.


“In the twilight of life, God will not judge us on our earthly possessions and human successes, but on how well we have loved.”

—John of the Cross
