A Plea for Deliverance

1 For the choir director. A Davidic psalm.
Lord, how long will You forget me?
Forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me?(A)
2
How long will I store up anxious concerns(a) within me,
agony in my mind every day?
How long will my enemy dominate me?(B)
3
Consider me and answer, Lord my God.
Restore brightness to my eyes;(C)
otherwise, I will sleep in death.
4
My enemy will say, “I have triumphed over him,”
and my foes will rejoice because I am shaken.(D)
5
But I have trusted in Your faithful love;(E)
my heart will rejoice in Your deliverance.(F)
6
I will sing to the Lord
because He has treated me generously.(G)
