Psalm 130

Out of the depths I cry to you...
  From the depths of my being
  My soul cries out,
  But my mouth says nothing.

If, O Lord, you should mark our iniquities...
  Forgive me my transgressions.
  Cleanse my soul.
  I cannot even ask forgiveness!

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits...
  How long, O God, how long?
  Trapped in here for how long?
  What life, what hope is this?

O Israel, hope in the Lord ...
  O God, you alone can release me
  From this prison of darkness
  Of insensate existence!
  O God, take me home!
