Out of the depths

Psalm 129

  • Ostinato refrain:
    Out of the depths I cry to you, O God,
    Lord, hear my voice.
  1. O Lord, let your ears be attentive
    to the voice, the voice of my pleading.
  2. Only through God will we survive,
    for in God is found forgiveness.
  3. My soul is thirsting for the Lord,
    I count on God's word and wait for the Lord.
  4. In the Lord there is mercy and fullness,
    I will be redeemed.
