Hymn/Song Information

My God my God why leavest thou me when




My God, my God, why leav'st thou me
when I with anguish faint?
O why so far from me removed,
and from my loud complaint?


All day, but all the day unheard,
to thee do I complain;
With cries implore relief all night,
but cry all night in vain.


Yet thou art still the righteous judge
of innocence oppressed;
And therefore Israel's praises are
of right to thee addressed.


On thee our ancestors relied,
and thy deliv'rance found;
With pious confidence they prayed,
and with success were crowned.


But I am treated like a worm,
like none of human birth;
Not only by the great reviled,
but made the rabble's mirth.


With laughter all the gazing crowd
my agonies survey;
They shoot the lip, they shake the head,
and thus deriding say:


"In God he trusted, boasting oft
that he was Heav'n's delight;
"Let God come down to save him now,
and own his favorite."
