Out Of The Deep

Out of the Deep - John Rutter

1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD;

2 O Lord, hear my voice.
your ears be attentive
to my cry for mercy.

3 If you, O LORD, kept a
record of sins,
O Lord, who could stand?

4 But with you there is
therefore you are feared.

5 I wait for the LORD, my
soul waits,
and in his word I put my hope.

6 My soul waits for the
more than watchmen wait for the morning,
more than watchmen wait
for the morning.

7 O Israel, put your hope in the LORD,
for with the
LORD is unfailing love
and with him is full redemption.

8 He himself
will redeem Israel
from all their sins.

Psalm 130

If you, O LORD, kept a record of sins,O Lord, who could stand? Isn't it amazing that God does not keep a record of our sins? We may do, but He doesn't. In Isaiah it says; "Come now, let us reason together," says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. Isa. 1:18. For this I am, and will be, eternally grateful.

Jesus on the cross said: "Father, forgive them, they know not what they do". (Luke 23:34)

More sophisticated that the usual Rutter....It shows a new depth to his compositions I feel. Very emotive music.

This is a Psalm I know by heart. I can recite it I mean.
