Prayer for Help in Trouble.
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
1 How long, O LORD? Will You forget R279 me forever?
How long will R280 You hide Your face from me?
2 How long shall I take R281 counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow R282 in my heart all the day?
How long will my enemy be exalted over me?
3 Consider R283 and answer me, O LORD my God;
Enlighten R284 my eyes, or I will sleep R285 the sleep of death,
4 And my enemy will say, R286 "I have overcome him,"
And my R287 adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken.
5 But I have trusted R288 in Your lovingkindness;
My heart shall rejoice R289 in Your salvation.
6 I will sing R290 to the LORD,
Because He has dealt R291 bountifully with me.
