Out of the deep have I called unto thee O Lord:
Lord hear my voice.
O let thine ears consider well: the voice of my complaint.
If thou Lord wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss:
O Lord who may abide it?
For there is mercy with thee:
therefore shalt thou be feared.
I look for the Lord my soul doth wait for him:
in his word is my trust.
My soul fleeth unto the Lord:
before the morning watch I say, before the morning watch.
O Israel trust in the Lord for with the Lord there is mercy:
and with him is plenteous redemption.
And he shall redeem Israel:
from all his sins.
Words from the Book of Common Prayer
