Out of the depths of woe To Thee O Lord I cry




Out of the depths of woe,
To Thee, O Lord, I cry;
Darkness surrounds Thee, but I know
That Thou art ever nigh.


I cast my hopes on thee;
Thou canst, thou wilt forgive;
If thou shouldst mark iniquity,
Who in thy sight could live?


I wait for thee; I wait,
Confessing all my sin:
Lord! I am knocking at thy gate;
Open, and take me in.


Like them whose longing eyes
Watch till the morning star,
Though late and seen through tempests, rise
Heaven's portals to unbar,—


Like them I watch and pray;
And though it tarry long,
Catch the first gleam of welcome day
Then burst into a song.


Glory to God above!
The waters soon will cease;
For lo, the swift returning dove
Brings home the sign of peace.


Though storms his face obscure,
And dangers threaten loud,
Thy holy covenant is sure;
Thy bow is in the cloud!


---Alternative verses---


Though storms thy face obscure,
And dangers threaten loud,
Thy holy covenant is sure;
Thy bow is in the cloud!
