1How long, Lord, will You forget me?
How long will You hide Your face?
2How long, Lord, will this depression
grip my soul in its embrace?
How long will this dreadful sorrow
pierce my heart all night and day?
How long will my soul’s attacker
be exalted o’er my way?
3Look on me, Lord, come and answer,
Light my eyes lest death approach;
4Lest my enemy claim vict’ry
and my foes gloat in reproach.
5But I trust Your lovingkindness,
in salvation I’ll rejoice;
6For the Lord has been good to me,
I will sing with heart and voice.
