Out of the depths, I cry to you, Lord!
My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow;
have mercy on me, according to your unfailing love.
May your Word of truth comfort and strengthen my soul.
You are the Resurrection and the Life.
He who believes in you will live, even though he dies!

Be my Light, my Strength, my Hope, and my Peace. Amen.
