1 How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord, forever?
how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
2 How long shall I take counsel within myself
having weariness daily in mine heart? how long shall
mine enemy be exalted above me?
3 Behold, and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten
mine eyes, that I sleep not in death.
4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against
him: and they that afflict me, rejoice, when I slide.
5 But I trust in thy mercy: mine heart shall rejoice
in thy salvation; I will sing to the Lord, because he
hath dealt lovingly with me.
