"If only you would hide me in the grave1 and conceal me till your anger has passed!2 If only you would set me a time and then remember3 me!4
If a man dies, will he live again? All the days of my hard service5 I will wait for my renewal6 to come.
You will call and I will answer you;7 you will long for the creature your hands have made.8
