Listen hard! Open your ears!
Listen to my cries for mercy.

As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit,
 and that’s why you’re worshiped.

and wait for what he’ll say and do.
My life’s on the line before God, my Lord,
 waiting and watching till morning,
waiting and watching till morning.

with God’s arrival comes generous redemption.
No doubt about it—he’ll redeem Israel,
 buy back Israel from captivity to sin.
