Prayer for Help in Trouble.
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
How long, O L
? Will You forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long will my enemy be exalted over me?
answer me, O L
Enlighten my eyes, or I will sleep the
And my enemy will say, I have overcome him,
my adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken.
But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness;
My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.
I will sing to the L
Because He has dealt bountifully with me.

David complains of delay
He prays for preventing grace
He boasts of divine mercy
