De profundis. A prayer of a sinner, trusting in the mercies of God. The sixth penitential psalm.
 Out of the depths I have cried to thee, O Lord:
 Lord, hear my voice. Let thy ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.
 If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities: Lord, who shall stand it.
 For with thee there is merciful forgiveness: and by reason of thy law, I have waited for thee, O Lord. My soul hath relied on his word:
 My soul hath hoped in the Lord.
 From the morning watch even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord.
 Because with the Lord there is mercy: and with him plentiful redemption.
 And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
