Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
O Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!
If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness that you may 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 steadfast love,
And with him is plentiful redemption.
And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
What I’m preaching on this morning. The title of my sermon is “I Hope.”
