So I am ready to give up; I am in deep despair.
I remember the days gone by; I think about all that you have done, I bring to mind all your deeds.
I lift up my hands to you in prayer; like dry ground my soul is thirsty for you.
Answer me now, Lord! I have lost all hope. Don't hide yourself from me, or I will be among those who go down to the world of the dead.
Remind me each morning of your constant love, for I put my trust in you. My prayers go up to you; show me the way I should go.
