For the director of music. A psalm of David.
1 How long, O Lord? Will you forget me
How long will you hide your face from me?
2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
and every day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?
3 Look on me and answer, O Lord my God.
Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in
4 my enemy will say,” I have overcome him,”
and my foes will rejoice when I fall.
5 But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoice in your salvation.
6 I will sing to the Lord,
for he has been good to me.
