How Long, O Lord?

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

1How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever?

How long will you hide your face from me?

2How long must I take counsel in my soul

and have sorrow in my heart all the day?

How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?

3Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;

light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death,

4lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,”

lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.

5But I have trusted in your steadfast love;

my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.

6I will sing to the Lord,

because he has dealt bountifully with me.
