"Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O LORD."
- Psalm 130:1
 
Two of the outstanding hymns which flowed from the heart of Dr. Martin Luther were "A Mighty Fortress is our God" and "From Depths of Woe I Cry to Thee" (which you hear).
 
The Psalm 130, which inspired the latter hymn is the nearest approach in the OT to ch 8 of the Epistle to the Romans. Which shows what took place in the heart of Luther. He was led out of indescribable depths of distress to see the plenteous redemption which is in Jesus, our Savior.

When Luther was at the Castle of Coburg and suffered much from inner conflict said to his friends come and let us sing,"From Depths of Woe I cry to Thee."
 
Christian friends, this psalm upon which it is based ought to be etched into our memories and hearts so that it may be to us an inexhaustible treasury of comfort. (If you wish the words I will send them to you.)
 
O my soul, wait on the LORD
And know He sees your need;
He'll make His presence known to you
Through word and kindly deed.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Those who wait on the LORD will never be disappointed.
