Psalm 130 – The “De Profundis” Prayer…


Psalm 130 – A Song of Ascents

Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord.
Lord, hear my voice!
Let Your ears be attentive
To the voice of my supplications.
If You, Lord, should mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with You,
That You may be feared.

I wait for the Lord, my soul does wait,
And in His Word do I hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
More than the watchmen for the morning;
Indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning.
O Israel, hope in the Lord;
For with the Lord there is loving kindness,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
And He will redeem Israel
From all his iniquities.

(New American Standard Version translation)

For a truly magnificent reflection on this Psalm, drawing parallels to the Calming of the Storm Gospel passage –—12th-Sunday-in-Ordinary-Time—-The–.aspx.
