1 [To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.] How long will you forget me, O LORD? Forever? How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?
3 Consider and hear me, O LORD my God. Lighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death,
4 Lest my enemy say, "I have prevailed against him." And those who trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
5 But I have trusted in your mercy. My heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
6 I will sing to the LORD because he has dealt bountifully with me.
