The Sixth Penitential Psalm

Is Psalm 129(130) De profundis. (note- if you’ve seen the movie “the Sixth Scense” this is the latin phrase the kid says to the Bruce  Willis character “De profundis clamavi ad te Domine” the opening line of this psalm.)


Out of the deep have I cried unto thee, O Lord; Lord, hear my voice. O let thine ears consider well the voice of my complaint. If thou, Lord, wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss, O Lord, who may abide it? For there is mercy with thee; therefore shalt thou be feared. I look for the Lord; my soul doth wait for him. In his word is my trust. My soul fleeth unto the Lord before the morning watch, I say, before the morning watch.

O Israel, trust in the Lord; for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. And he shall redeem IsraeI from all his sins.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
