[To the chiefe Musician.
A Psalme of Dauid.]
1
How long wilt thou forget mee (O Lord) for euer?
how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
2
How long shall I take counsel in my soule, hauing sorrow in my heart dayly?
how long shall mine enemie be exalted ouer me?
3
Consider and heare me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleepe of death.
4
Least mine enimie say, I haue preuailed against him: and those that trouble mee, reioyce, when I am moued.
5
But I haue trusted in thy mercy, my heart shall reioyce in thy saluation.
6
I will sing vnto the Lord, because hee hath dealt bountifully with mee.
