From the deeps of grief and fear,
O Lord ! to Thee my soul repairs :
From Thy heaven bow down Thine ear ;
Let Thy mercy meet my prayers.
Oh if Thou mark'st
What's done amiss,
What soul so pure,
Can see Thy bliss ?
But with Thee sweet mercy stands,
Sealing pardons, working fear :
Wait, my soul, wait on His hands ;
Wait mine eye, Oh ! wait mine ear :
If He His eye
Or tongue affords,
Watch all His looks,
Catch all His words.
As a watchman waits for day,
And looks for light, and looks again ;
When the night grows cold and gray,
To be relieved he calls amain :
