Language: English  after the Latin 
Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD!
Lord, hear my voice! Hear my voice!Let thine ears
be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
If thou, LORD, shouldst mark iniquities, O LORD, who shall stand?
I wait for the LORD, my doth soul doth wait
my soul waiteth for the LORD more than they that watch for
the morning, I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
