Although our sins testify against us, do something, LORD, for the sake of your name. For we have often rebelled; we have sinned against you.
You who are the hope of Israel, its Savior in times of distress, why are you like a stranger in the land, like a traveler who stays only a night?
Why are you like a man taken by surprise, like a warrior powerless to save? You are among us, LORD, and we bear your name; do not forsake us!
