Psalm 13

How Long, O Lord?


      1 How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever? 

      How long will you hide your face from me? 

      2 How long must I take counsel in my soul 

      and have sorrow in my heart all the day? 

      How long shall my enemy be exalted over me? 

      3 Consider and answer me, O LORD my God; 

      light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death, 

      4 lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,” 

      lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken. 

      5 But I have trusted in your steadfast love; 

      my heart shall rejoice in your salvation. 

      6 I will sing to the LORD, 

      because he has dealt bountifully with me.
