How long, O LORD? Will You forget me forever?
a How long will You hide Your face from me? 2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart daily?
How long will my enemy be exalted over me?
Consider and hear me, O LORD my God;
b Enlighten my eyes,
c Lest I sleep the sleep of death; 4 Lest my enemy say,
"I have prevailed against him";
Lest those who trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
But I have trusted in Your mercy;
My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. 6 I will sing to the LORD,
Because He has dealt bountifully with me.
