1 Look at me, O God!
Answer me, O God!
Must I suffer in this way,
trials, torment, night and day?
Speak to me, O God!

2 Troubles test my heart,
tear my life apart!
How much more before I die?
You are silent when I cry -
speak to me, O God!

3 Though you seem unjust
only you I trust,
still your love will rescue me,
still your hand will set me free -
speak to me, O God!
