Psalm 116:1, 10-17       (please sing together)                        #352


Lord, from the depths to thee I cried.  My voice, Lord, do thou hear: Unto my supplication’s voice give an attentive ear.

Lord, who shall stand, if thou, O Lord, should’st mark iniquity? But yet with thee forgiveness is, that feared thou mayest be.

I wait for God, my soul doth wait, my hope is in his word.
More than they that for morning watch, my soul waits for the Lord;

I say, more than they that do watch the morning light to see. Let Israel hope in the Lord, for with him mercies be.
