Prayer for Help in Affliction
 
 
For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
 
 
[1]  HOW long, O Jehovah? wilt thou forget me 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 all the day?
How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
[3]  Consider and answer me, O Jehovah my God:
Lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
[4]  Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him;
Lest mine adversaries rejoice when I am moved.
[5]  But I have trusted in thy lovingkindness;
My heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
[6]  I will sing unto Jehovah,
Because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
