How long, O Lord, will you so utterly forget me :
how long will you hide your face from me?
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?
Look upon me, O Lord my God, and answer me :
lighten my eyes, lest I sleep in death;
Lest my enemy say I have prevailed against him :
lest my foes exult at my overthrow.
Yet I put my trust in your unfailing love :
O let my heart rejoice in your salvation.
And I will make my song to the Lord :
because he deals so bountifully with me.
