A Pilgrim Song 130 1Help, God—the bottom has fallen out of my life! Master, hear my cry for help! 2Listen hard! Open your ears! Listen to my cries for mercy. 3If you, God, kept records on wrongdoings, who would stand a chance? 4As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit, and that’s why you’re worshiped. 5I pray to God—my life a prayer— and wait for what he’ll say and do. 6My life’s on the line before God, my Lord, waiting and watching till morning, waiting and watching till morning. 7O Israel, wait and watch for God— with God’s arrival comes love, with God’s arrival comes generous redemption. 8No doubt about it—he’ll redeem Israel, buy back Israel from captivity to sin.
