How long wilt Thou forget me lord! Shall it forever be?
Eternal God, how long wilt Thou, still hide Thy face from me?
How long take counsel in my soul, and sorrow day by day;
How long exalted over me shall be mine enemy?
O Lord my God, consider Thou, An answer give to me;
Lest I should sleep the sleep of death, mine eyes enlighten Lord;
And lest mine enemy should say, Against him I prevailed;
And those who troubled me, rejoice when I am shaken, Lord.
But as for me, I put my trust In Thy great mercy God!
And I shall sing unto the Lord and praise His Holy Name;
I will rejoice with my whole heart; In His salvation trust,
And I will sing unto my God for His great love to me.
