Psalm 13: A psalm of lament
How long, O Lord?
Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I bear pain in my soul?
And have sorrow in my heart all day long?
How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?
Consider and answer me, O Lord my God!
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep the sleep of death,
and my enemy will say, "I have prevailed".
My foes will rejoice because I am shaken.
But I trusted in your steadfast love.
My heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord
because he has dealt bountifully with me.
