How Long Will You Forget Me, LORD?

  1. How long will you forget me, LORD?
    Forever will it be?
    How long, LORD, will you hide your face
    and turn your gaze from me?
  2. How long must I be sad each day
    in deep perplexity?
    How long will my opponent stand
    in triumph over me?
  3. O LORD my God, consider me
    and give me your reply.
    Light up my eyes or I will sleep
    the sleep of those who die.
  4. Then would my enemy declare,
    “At last I brought him low!”
    And so my foes would sing for joy
    to see my overthrow.
  5. But still I trust your steadfast love;
    your saving pow’r I praise.
    The LORD has richly dealt with me;
    my songs to him I raise.
