More Than They That Watch for the Morning
Our offertory this morning was Phil's lovely arrangement of Psalm 130, accompanied by banjo, guitar, double bass, cello, violin, piano, and percussion. I so wish I could post a clip of this song which has been coursing through my brain all day, strengthening my soul, but here are the infallible words:
(A song of ascents)
Out of the depths I have cried unto thee, O LORD.
Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?
But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning. Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.
And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
