For the Music Director. A Psalm of David.
1How long, O Lord? Will You forget me for good?
How long will you hide Your face fromme?
2#Ps 63:1; 84:2 How long will I harbor cares in my soul
and sorrow in my heart by day?
How long will my enemy loom over me?
3#Ps 79:10; 80:5 Take note and answer me, O Lord my God!
Brighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death,
4#Isa 30:29; Ps 62:8 lest my enemy say, “I have him,”
lest my foes exult when I stumble.
5#Ps 42:11; 43:5 I for my part confide in Your kindness;
may my heart exult in Your salvation!
6#2Sa 17:22; Dt 3:8–9 I will sing to the Lord,
because He has dealt bountifully withme.
