Out of the Depths

Yet another responsive Psalm, this time devised for a service in Braniel Church. I think that some of it reflected the bleak place that I found myself in mentally and spiritually a week or two ago.

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord;
I’m in the depths of darkness, despair and death.
O Lord, please hear my voice.
Open your ears to my cries for mercy.
If you, Lord, kept a record of sins, who could stand before you?
But you are a forgiving God, and that is why you should be adored.
I wait for you expectantly O, Lord,
and in your word I put my hope.
I’m watching and waiting for the morning to break,
I’m watching and waiting for the morning.
O people of God, put your hope in the Lord,
for the love of the Lord is unfailing
With him comes full redemption.
The Lord himself will pay the price of his people’s sins.

from Psalm 130 (© David Campton 2008)
