How Long, O Lord?

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

13 (A)How long, O Lord? Will you (B)forget me forever?
    How long will you (C)hide your face from me?
How long must I take (D)counsel in my soul
    and have sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?

(E)Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;
    (F)light up my eyes, lest (G)I sleep the sleep of death,
(H)lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,”
    lest my foes rejoice because I am (I)shaken.

But I have (J)trusted in your steadfast love;
    my heart shall (K)rejoice in your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord,
    because he has dealt bountifully with me.
