1How long, O LORD? Will you 2forget me forever? How long will you 3hide your face from me?
How long must I take 4counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?
5Consider and answer me, O LORD my God; 6light up my eyes, lest 7I sleep the sleep of death,
8lest my enemy say, "I have prevailed over him," lest my foes rejoice because I am 9shaken.
But I have 10trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall 11rejoice in your salvation.
I will sing to the LORD, because he has dealt bountifully with me.
