How Long, O Lord? (Psalm 13)

About

The Psalms aren’t exactly a “pretty” part of the Bible. They cover the whole gamut of the human experience and emotional range when it comes to God: from praising Him to crying out to Him, all the good, bad, and ugly all mixed in together. Psalm 13 is one of those on the “darker” side of the Psalter spectrum, but even then it ends with praise and hope. And perhaps that is what life is…

Lyrics

How long, O LORD, will you forget me? How long will you hide your face from me?
How long must I wrestle with my thoughts, every day have sorrow in my heart?
How long will my enemy triumph over me?
Look on me and answer, O LORD my God, give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death:
My enemy will say, “I have overcome him,” and my foes will rejoice when I fall.

But I trust in your love, in your unfailing love; I trust in your love, in your unfailing love
My heart rejoices in your salvation, and I will sing unto the Lord
My heart rejoices in your salvation…for he has been good to me.
