Psalm 13


When your enemies

are plotting against you

and God seems far away

For the director of music. A psalm of David.

Lord, how long must I wait? Will you forget me forever?
      How long will you turn your face away from me?
2 How long must I struggle with my thoughts?
      How long must my heart be sad day after day?
      How long will my enemies keep winning the battle over me?

3 Lord my God, look at me and answer me.
      Give me new life, or I will die.
4 Then my enemies will say, “We have beaten him.”
      They will be filled with joy when I die.
5 But I trust in your faithful love.
      My heart is filled with joy because you will save me.
6 I will sing to the Lord.
      He has been so good to me.
