Lord, you are the God who saves me. I cry out to you day and night.
Receive my prayer, and listen to my cry.
My life is full of troubles, and I am nearly dead.
They think I am on the way to my grave. I am like a man with no strength.
I have been left as dead, like a body lying in a grave whom you don't remember anymore, cut off from your care.
You have brought me close to death; I am almost in the dark place of the dead.
