My Soul Waits for the Lord

Psalm 130

1 Help, God - the bottom has fallen out of my life! Master, hear my cry for help!
Listen hard! Open your ears!
Listen to my cries for mercy.

3 If you, God, kept records on wrongdoings,
who would stand a chance?
As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit,
and that's why you're worshiped.

5 I pray to God - my life a prayer -
and wait for what he'll say and do.
My life's on the line before God, my Lord,
waiting and watching till morning,
waiting and watching till morning.

7 O Israel, wait and watch for God -
with God's arrival comes love,
with God's arrival comes generous redemption.
No doubt about it - he'll redeem Israel,
buy back Israel from captivity to sin.
