Original text and translations
From depth of sinne, O Lord to thee
I have made humble cry,
Lord heare my voice, make it assend
Unto thy throne so hye.
Unto the voyce of my request,
Pour’d out before thy sight,
Lord let thine eares attentive be,
To heare me day and night.
(Metrical version of Psalm 130: 1-2)
