How long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
How long shall I take consel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart daily?
How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
Consider and hear me, O LORD my God:
Lest I sleep the sleep of death;
And those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
But I have trusted in thy mercy;
My heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
I will sing unto the LORD /of suffering/,
Because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
Lest I sleep the sleep of death;"**
Darken the skies
Lest I have my final breath!
liberated, suffering no more
blessed be thy holy name, O LORD
into thy hands I commend my soul...
