O God my God wherefore dost Thou




O God, my God, wherefore dost Thou
Forsake me utterly?
And helpest not when I do make
My great complaint and cry?


To Thee, my God, e’en all day long
I do both cry and call;
I cease not all the night, and yet
Thou hearest not at all.


But Thou that in Thy holy place
For evermore dost dwell;
Thou art the joy, the comfort, and
Glory of Israel:


And Him in Whom our fathers old
Had all their hope and stay;
Who, when they put their trust in Thee,
Delivered’st them alway.


They were preservèd ever when
They called upon Thy Name;
And for the faith they had in Thee,
They were not put to shame.


But I am now become more like
A worm than to a man,
An outcast, whom the people scorn
With all the spite they can.


All men despise as they behold
Me walking on the way:
They grin, make mouths,
and nod their heads,
And on this wise do say.


This man did glory in the Lord,
His favor and His love:
Let Him redeem and help him now,
His pow’r if he will prove.


But from the prison of the womb
I was by Thee released;
Thou didst preserve me still in hope,
Whilst I did suck the breast:


I was committed from my birth
With Thee to have abode;
Since I came from my mother’s womb,
Thou hast been still my God.
