I am the man who has seen affliction by the rod of His wrath.
He has led me and made me walk In darkness and not in light.
Surely He has turned His hand against me Time and time again throughout the day.
He has aged my flesh and my skin, And broken my bones.
He has besieged me And surrounded me with bitterness and woe.
He has set me in dark places Like the dead of long ago.
