PSALM 130 - Hope and Forgiveness 11 Mar 2020
On my way to the city of peace I am aware of my sins. My God likes to forgive and forget. I trust his promise to forgive me when I confess my sins.
1 [Song of Ascents]
From the depths I call to you, Yahweh:
2 Lord, hear my cry.
Listen attentively to the sound of my pleading!
If you kept a record of our sins, Lord,
who could stand their ground?
4 But with you is forgiveness,
that you may be revered.
5 I rely, my whole being relies, Yahweh,
on your promise.
6 My whole being hopes in the Lord,
more than watchmen for daybreak;
More than watchmen for daybreak
7 let Israel hope in Yahweh.
For with Yahweh is faithful love,
with him generous ransom;
8 and he will ransom Israel from all its sins.
