Uit de diepten
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the Latin 
Uit de diepten heb ik tot U geroepen, Heer; 
Heer, luister naar mijn stem.
Mogen uw oren gespitst zijn 
op de stem van mijn smeekbede.
Als gij let op ongerechtigheden, Heer, 
Heer, wie zal het dan uithouden?
Want bij U is verzoening: 
om uw wet heb ik U hoog gehouden, Heer.
Mijn ziel heeft op zijn woord stand gehouden; 
mijn ziel heeft op de Heer gehoopt.
Vanaf de ochtendwacht tot 
aan de nacht moet Israel hopen op de Heer.
Want bij hem is mededogen, 
en overvloedig is bij hem verlossing.
En Hij zelf zal Israel bevrijden 
uit al zijn ongerechtigheden.
