1 How long, O Lord, will you so utterly forget me:
how long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I suffer anguish in my soul,
and be so grieved in my heart day and night:
how long shall my enemy triumph over me?
3 Look upon me, O Lord my God, and answer me:
lighten my eyes, lest I sleep in death;
4 Lest my enemy say ‘I have prevailed’:
lest my foes exult at my overthrow.
5 Yet I put my trust in your unfailing love:
O let my heart rejoice in your salvation.
6 And I will make my song to the Lord:
because he deals so bountifully with me.
