Psalms 130

Psalm 130

A Song of Ascents.
 1 Out of the depths I have cried to You, O LORD;
 2 Lord, hear my voice!
         Let Your ears be attentive
         To the voice of my supplications.
 3 If You, LORD, should mark iniquities,
         O Lord, who could stand?
 4 But there is forgiveness with You,
         That You may be feared.
 5 I wait for the LORD, my soul waits,
         And in His word I do hope.
 6 My soul waits for the Lord
         More than those who watch for the morning—
         Yes, more than those who watch for the morning.
 7 O Israel, hope in the LORD;
         For with the LORD there is mercy,
         And with Him is abundant redemption.
 8 And He shall redeem Israel
         From all his iniquities.

The prophesies and poetry of the book of Psalms is amazing. The raw emotions expressed throughout Psalms is comforting. For me, knowing that God knows our emotions all too well and that we can still turn to Him is... astounding. He is just that awesome. Who wouldn't want to be His?
