My Soul for Your Salvation Yearns
- 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?”
- 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?
- 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.
- 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.
