Prayer for Help in Trouble.
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
1How long, O LORD? Wilt Thou forget me forever?
How long wilt Thou hide Thy face from me?
2How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long will my enemy be exalted over me?
3Consider and answer me, O LORD, my God;
Enlighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death,
4Lest my enemy say, “I have overcome him,”
Lest my adversaries rejoice when I am shaken.
5But I have trusted in Thy lovingkindness;
My heart shall rejoice in Thy salvation.
6I will sing to the LORD,
Because He has dealt bountifully with me.
