1 For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David.How long, Lord?Will you forget me forever?How long will you hide your face from me?

2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul,having sorrow in my heart every day?How long shall my enemy triumph over me?

3 Behold, and answer me, Lord, my God.Give light to my eyes, lest I sleep in death;

4 Lest my enemy say, "I have prevailed against him;"Lest my adversaries rejoice when I fall.

5 But I trust in your loving kindness.My heart rejoices in your salvation.

6 I will sing to the Lord,because he has been good to me.
