How Long, O Lord?
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
1 How 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 souland 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.
