How long wilt thou forget me Lord shall




How long wilt thou forget me, Lord?
shall it for ever be?
How long dost thou intend to hide
thy face away from me?


In heart and mind how long shall I
with care tormented be?
And how long shall my deadly foe
thus triumph over me?


Behold me now, O Lord my God,
and hear me sore oppressed;
Lighten my eyes, lest I do sleep
as one by death possessed:


Lest that my enemy do say,
Behold, I do prevail;
Lest they also that hate my soul,
rejoice to see me fail.


But from thy mercy and goodness
my hope shall not depart;
In thy relief and saving health
right glad shall be my heart.


I will give thanks unto the Lord,
and praises to him sing;
Because he hath heard my request
for ev'ry needful thing.
