0 The Lord's Plenteous Redemption

Fellow follower of Christ: let not your heart be troubled if ever the slightest difficulty arises in your life. Recall the words of Psalm 130, which broke upon my heart this morning with fresh dispersals of God's grace to me.

1 Out of c the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
2 O Lord, hear my voice!
d Let your ears be attentive
to e the voice of my pleas for mercy!

3 If you, O Lord, should f mark iniquities,
O Lord, who could g stand?
4 But with you there is h forgiveness,
i that you may be feared.

5 I j wait for the Lord, k my soul waits,
and l in his word I hope;
6 my soul m waits for the Lord
more than n watchmen for o the morning,
more than watchmen for the morning.

7 O Israel, p hope in the Lord!
For q with the Lord there is steadfast love,
and with him is plentiful redemption.
8 And he will r redeem Israel
from all his iniquities.

(Psalm 130, ESV)

If ever you are challenged, rest your heart here. If ever you fail at something, take shelter in these words. The Lord indeed is good.
