Psalm 130: Out of the Deep Have I Called Unto Thee, O Lord – The Choir of Westminster Abbey

This is an old Church of England chant on Psalm 130:1-7, which was modified over time, but was originally inspired by Henry Purcell’s “Out of the Deep Have I Called Unto Thee, O Lord” in De Profundis (1680). Buy this and many other recorded psalms here; perfect for prayer and contemplation.

1. Out of the deep have I called unto thee, O Lord:
Lord, hear my voice.

2. O let Thine ears consider well:
the voice of my complaint.

3. If thou, Lord, wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss:
O Lord, who may abide it?

4. For there is mercy with Thee:
therefore shalt Thou be feared.

5. I look for the Lord; my soul doth wait for Him:
in His Word is my trust.

6. My soul fleeth unto the Lord before the morning watch:
I say, before the morning watch.

7. O Israel, trust in the Lord; for with the Lord there is mercy:
and with Him is plenteous redemption.

8. And He shall redeem Israel:
from all his sins.

9. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son:
And to the Holy Ghost

10. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be:
World without end. Amen.
