Hymn/Song Information

How long wilt thou forget me Lord must I




How long wilt thou forget me, Lord?
must I for ever mourn?
How long wilt thou withdraw from me,
Oh! never to return?


How long shall anxious thoughts my soul,
and grief my heart oppress?
How long my enemies insult,
and I have no redress?


Hear thou, and to my longing eyes
restore thy wonted light!
And suddenly, or I shall sleep
in everlasting night.


Restore me, lest they proudly boast,
'twas their own strength o'ercame,
Permit not them that vex my soul
to triumph in my shame.


Since I have always placed my trust
beneath thy mercy's wing,
Thy saving health will come, and then
my heart with joy shall spring:


Then shall I raise glad songs of praise
To my forgiving Lord;
And thou wilt ever be my Help,
My Hope, my large Reward.


Then shall my song, with praise inspired,
to thee, my God, ascend;
Who to thy servant in distress
such bounty didst extend.


---Alternative verses---


O hear! and to my longing eyes
restore thy wonted light!
And suddenly, or I shall sleep
in everlasting night.
