The Psalms

A Prayer for Help in Trouble
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

1  How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever?
How long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
2  How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
having sorrow in my heart daily?
How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
3  Consider and hear me, O LORD my God:
lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
4  lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him;
and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
5  But I have trusted in thy mercy;
my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
6  I will sing unto the LORD,
because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
