Hymn/Song Information

From lowest depths of woe to God I send my cry




From lowest depths of woe
to God I send my cry;
Lord, hear my supplicating voice,
and graciously reply.


Shouldst thou severely judge,
who can the trial bear?
But thou forgivest, lest we despond,
and quite renounce thy fear.


My soul with patience waits
for thee, the living Lord;
My hopes are on thy promise built,
thy never-failing word.


My longing eyes look out
for thy enlivening ray,
More duly than the morning watch
to spy the dawning day.


Let Israel trust in God,
no bounds his mercy knows;
The plenteous source and spring from whence
eternal succour flows.


Whose friendly streams to us
supplies in want convey;
A healing spring, a spring to cleanse,
and wash our guilt away.


---Alternative verses---


Shouldst thou severely judge,
who can the trial bear?
Forgive, O Lord, lest we despond,
and quite renounce thy fear.


My longing eyes look out
for thy enlivening ray,
More duly than the morning watch
to hail the dawning day.
