338. Ever Waiting for the Lord

1 From the depths do I invoke Thee;
O Jehovah, give an ear;
To my voice be Thou attentive
And my supplication hear.

I am waiting, waiting,
Waiting, ever waiting for the Lord;
I am waiting, waiting,
Ever waiting for the Lord.

2 Lord, if Thou shouldst mark transgressions,
Who before Thee, Lord, shall stand?
But with Thee there is forgiveness
That Thy name may fear command. [Refrain]

3 For Jehovah I am waiting,
And my hope is in His word,
In His word of promise given;
Yea, my soul waits for the Lord. [Refrain]

4 For the Lord my soul is waiting,
More than watchers in the night,
More than they for morning watching,
Watching for the morning light. [Refrain]
