My Soul for Your Salvation Yearns

  1. My soul for your salvation yearns and faints,
    but I have set my hope upon your word.
    My eyes with longing seek your promised help;
    I say, “When will you comfort me, O LORD?”
  2. I’m shriveled like a wineskin in the smoke,
    yet I do not forget all your decrees.
    O how much longer must your servant wait?
    O when, LORD, will you judge my enemies?
  3. The proud have hidden pitfalls in my way;
    their minds are fixed against your holy laws.
    Your precepts all remain forever sure;
    LORD, help me! for they hound me without cause.
  4. They almost made an end of me on earth,
    but I have not forsaken your decree.
    Preserve my life according to your love;
    that all the words your mouth speaks I may keep.
