Title: I Am Calling You
Lyricist: Psalm 130 (adapted) and Elizabeth Ragsdale
Composer: Elizabeth Ragsdale
Out of deep places have I called unto you, my Lord.
O hear my voice. Attend onto my prayer.
If you marked iniquity, who would stand?
But yours is the way of mercy.
I call to you. I worship you.
I wait for you, O Lord. With longing do I wait.
In your holy word I put my ev’ry hope.
More than those who watch for morning light
Do I watch for you, O Lord.
I wait for you. I watch for you.
I am calling, worshiping you.
I am waiting, watching.
I trust in you, O Lord. Unfailing is your grace,
A sure release from sinful sense.
Steadfast is your love, a mother’s care,
A father’s fidelity.
I trust in you. I am loved by you.
I am loved.
