Lent: Fifth Sunday in Lent

Psalm

A Prayer for Help

1From the depths of my despair I call to you, LORD.

2Hear my cry, O Lord;

listen to my call for help!

3If you kept a record of our sins,

who could escape being condemned?

4But you forgive us,

so that we should stand in awe of you.

5I wait eagerly for the LORD's help,

and in his word I trust.

6I wait for the Lord

more eagerly than watchmen wait for the dawn —

than watchmen wait for the dawn.

7Israel, trust in the LORD,

because his love is constant

and he is always willing to save.

8He will save his people Israel

from all their sins.
