1 How long wilt thou forget me, Lord?
shall it for ever be?
How long wilt thou so sadly hide
thy face away from me?

2 How long within my soul consult,
and grieve in heart shall I?
How long exalted over me
shall be mine enemy?

3 O Lord my God, consider me
and answer to me make;
Mine eyes enlighten, lest the sleep
of death me overtake.

4 Lest my proud foes in boasting say,
against him I prevail;
Lest those that trouble me rejoice,
to see me wholly fail.

5 But as I set my confidence
upon thy bounteous grace;
My heart in thy salvation shall
rejoyce with thankful praise.

6 Yea to Jehovah songs of praise
I'll sing melodiously;
Who in his kindness deals with me
exceeding bounteously.

The Psalm, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs of the Old and New-Testament,1742
