1 How long, O LORD? Will thou forget me forever? How long will thou hide thy face from me?
2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having 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. Lighten my eyes, lest I sleep the death,
4 lest my enemy say, I have prevailed against him, [lest] my adversaries rejoice when I am moved.
5 But I have trusted in thy loving kindness. My heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
6 I will sing to LORD because he has dealt bountifully with me.
