1 How long will you utterly forget me, O Lord?*
How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long shall I seek counsel in my soul and be so vexed in my heart? *
How long shall my enemy triumph over me?
3 Consider and hear me, O Lord my God;*
give light to my eyes, that I sleep not in death,
4 Lest my enemy say, "I have prevailed against him";*
for if I am cast down, those who trouble me will rejoice.
5 But my trust is in your mercy,*
and my heart is joyful in your salvation.
6 I will sing of the Lord, because he has dealt so lovingly with me;*
indeed, I will praise the Name of the Lord Most High.
