We Wait Full of Hope (Psalm 130)

A breathless, contemplative meditation of longing.



We wait full of hope for the Holy One, 
our whole being breathless 

Verse 1: 
Out of the depths I have cried to you, 
cried to you, our covenant God 
O Holy One, won't you hear my voice 
Hear my voice, our covenant God 



Verse 2: 
Were you on vigil to watch for sin, 
who could stand, our covenant God 
With you instead is forgiving love. 
We’re in awe, our covenant God 



Verse 3: 
All of our being waits for you, 
longs for you, our covenant God 
More that the night watchmen watch for dawn, 
wait for dawn, our covenant God 



Verse 4: 
O Israel, our nation, wait for our covenant God 
Unfailing love, liberating love 
like the dawn, our covenant God
