To the Chief Musician: A Psalm of David

How long wilt thou forget me O Lord? for ever?

How long wilt thou hide thy face from me?

How long shall I take counsel in my soul,

Having sorrow in my heart daily?

How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

Consider and hear me, O Lord my God:

Lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him;

And those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

But I have trusted in thy mercy;

My heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.

I will sing unto the Lord,

Because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
