1
ΒΆ HOW long, O LORD, wilt thou forsake me?
For ever?
How long wilt thou turn away thy face from me?
2
How long shall I keep sorrow in my soul and misery in my heart daily?
How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
3
Consider and hear me, O LORD my God;
lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep in death,
4
Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him, and those that trouble me rejoice when I am shaken.
5
But I have trusted in thy mercy;
my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
6
I will sing unto the LORD, because he has saved me.
