Psalm 130 New Century Version (NCV)
A Prayer for Mercy
A song for going up to worship.
130 Lord, I am in great trouble, so I call out to you.
2 Lord, hear my voice; listen to my prayer for help.
3 Lord, if you punished people for all their sins, no one would be left, Lord.
4 But you forgive us, so you are respected.
5 I wait for the Lord to help me, and I trust his word.
6 I wait for the Lord to help me more than night watchmen wait for the dawn, more than night watchmen wait for the dawn.
7 People of Israel, put your hope in the Lord because he is loving
and able to save.
8 He will save Israel from all their sins.
