Psalm 130: Prayer for Pardon and Mercy

3 If you, Lord, keep account of sins, Lord, who can stand?

4 But with you is forgiveness and so you are revered.

5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits and I hope for his word.

6 My soul looks for the Lord more than sentinels for daybreak. More than sentinels for daybreak,

7 let Israel hope in the Lord, For with the Lord is mercy, with him is plenteous redemption,

8 And he will redeem Israel from all its sins.
