For the choir director. A Psalm of David.
O God of my praise,
Do not be silent!
He is your praise and He is your God, who has done these great and awesome things for you which your eyes have seen.
A Psalm of David.
To You, O Lord, I call;
My rock, do not be deaf to me,
For if You are silent to me,
I will become like those who go down to the pit.
A Song, a Psalm of Asaph.
O God, do not remain quiet;
Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.
Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed;
Save me and I will be saved,
For You are my praise.
“The Lord is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation;
This is my God, and I will praise Him;
My father’s God, and I will extol Him.
You have seen it, O Lord, do not keep silent;
O Lord, do not be far from me.
You are my God, and I give thanks to You;
You are my God, I extol You.
“I have kept silent for a long time,
I have kept still and restrained Myself.
Now like a woman in labor I will groan,
I will both gasp and pant.
