Lord, you are the God who saves me. Day and night I cry out to you.
Please hear my prayer. Pay attention to my cry for help.
I have so many troubles I'm about to die.
People think my life is over. I'm like someone who doesn't have any strength.
People treat me as if I were dead. I'm like those who have been killed and are now in the grave. You don't even remember them anymore. They are cut off from your care.
It seems as if you have put me deep down in the grave, that deep and dark place.
