This piece has not been traced to a primary source. It should be remembered that this version is probably simplified for use in country parishes, and not in a cathedral foundation, where the treatment would have been more elaborate.
Lyrics: Psalm 130, vv. 1-4

Out of the deep have I called unto thee,
O Lord: Lord, hear my voice.
O let thine ears consider well: the voice of my complaint.
If thou, Lord, wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss: O Lord, who may abide it?
But there is mercy with thee: therefore shalt thou be feared.
