Psalm 13

(from Day 2 Evening Prayer)

Usque quo, Domine?

  1. HOW long wilt thou forget me, O Lord, for ever: how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
  2. How long shall I seek counsel in my soul, and be so vexed in my heart: how long shall mine enemies triumph over me?
  3. Consider, and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, that I sleep not in death.
  4. Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him: for if I be cast down, they that trouble me will rejoice at it.
  5. But my trust is in thy mercy: and my heart is joyful in thy salvation.
  6. I will sing of the Lord, because he hath dealt so lovingly with me: yea, I will praise the Name of the Lord most Highest.
