Psalm 13

[1]     How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
[2]     How long must I take counsel in my soul
and have sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?

[3]     Consider and answer me, O LORD my God;
light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death,
[4]     lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,”
lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.

[5]     But I have trusted in your steadfast love;
my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
[6]     I will sing to the LORD,
because he has dealt bountifully with me.
