|[To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.]||How long O Lord?. Psalm 13|
|How long, O LORD? Wilt thou forget me for ever? |
How long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
|How long must I bear pain in my soul, |
and have sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?
|Consider and answer me, O LORD my God; |
lighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
|lest my enemy say, "I have prevailed over him"; |
lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.
|But I have trusted in thy steadfast love; |
my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
|I will sing to the Lord, |
Because he has dealt bountifully with me.
