For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1How long, O LORD, wilt thou forget me for ever?
How long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
2How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
3Consider and answer me, O LORD my God:
Lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
4Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him;
Lest mine adversaries rejoice when I am moved.
5But I have trusted in thy mercy;
My heart shall rejoice in thy salvation:
6I will sing unto the LORD,
Because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
