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.

Lord, hear my voice; listen to my prayer for help.

Lord, if you punished people for all their sins, no one would be left, Lord.

But you forgive us, so you are respected.

I wait for the Lord to help me, and I trust his word.

I wait for the Lord to help me more than night watchmen wait for the dawn, more than night watchmen wait for the dawn.

People of Israel, put your hope in the Lord because he is loving
    and able to save.

He will save Israel from all their sins.
