A Prayer for God to Be Near
For the director of music. A song of David.
1How long will you forget me, Lord?
How long will you hide from me? Forever?
2How long must I worry?
How long must I feel sad in my heart?
How long will my enemy win over me?
3Lord, look at me.
Answer me, my God.
Tell me, or I will die.
4Otherwise my enemy will say, “I have won!”
Those against me will rejoice that I’ve been defeated.
5I trust in your love.
My heart is happy because you saved me.
6I sing to the Lord
because he has taken care of me.
