How Long, O Yahweh?
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
How long, O Yahweh? Will You forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me? 2
How 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?
Look and answer me, O Yahweh my God;
Give light to my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death, 4
Lest my enemy says, “I have overcome him,”
And my adversaries rejoice that I am shaken.
But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness;
My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. 6
I will sing to Yahweh,
Because He has dealt bountifully with me.
