How Long, O Lord
O God where are you?
have you forgotten me?
I can't see your face
where can it be?
My hearts sore with sorrow
each and every day
the enemy looks down on me
how long will it be that way?
O Lord speak clearly to me
help me from this plight
lighten up my eyes
take the darkness from the night
Don't let my enemy win
for they'll rejoice in that
leaving me all shaken up
bound down and flat
But your steadfast love
I trust rejoicing in your salvation
for you've dealt with me graciously
so I sing to the Lord with elation
How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
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?
Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;
light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death,
lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,”
lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.
But I have trusted in your steadfast love;
my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord,
because he has dealt bountifully with me.
Psalm 13 vs 1-6(ESV)
