The Gospel and God's words are more than mere words, they are the Word made Flesh. As we read them we are in our souls and spirit saying God's Holy Words that not only hold the world together but sustain us moment by moment. With Christ there is unfailing love and his redemption is plentiful. No matter your sins he will put them behind him, he forgives. Like Israel God redeems all of your sins!
My Soul Waits for the Lord
A Song of Ascents.
1 Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord! 2 O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy!
3 If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? 4 But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared.
5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; 6 my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.
7 O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is plentiful redemption. 8 And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
