My God, my God, why have you deserted me? Why do you seem to be so far away when I need you to save me? Why do you seem to be so far away that you can't hear my groans?
My God, I cry out in the daytime. But you don't answer. I cry out at night. I can't keep quiet.
But you rule from your throne as the Holy One. You are the God Israel praises.
Our people of long ago put their trust in you. They trusted in you, and you saved them.
They cried out to you and were saved. They trusted in you, and you didn't let them down.
People treat me like a worm and not a man. They hate me and look down on me.
