Psalm 13

W. van der Kamp, 1972

  1. How long, O LORD, wilt Thou forget?
    Far from Thy face I wait and fret.
    How long yet must I bear my sorrow?
    My heart longs for Thy mercy’s morrow.
    Why am I still with foes beset?
  2. Look, LORD my God, and answer me;
    Grant that my eyes Thy light may see,
    Lest, when the light of life shall fail me,
    When foes with joy and pride assail me,
    My fall delight my enemy.
  3. Thy steadfast love has been my stay;
    My heart shall praise Thee night and day
    And shall rejoice in Thy salvation,
    And I will praise with jubilation
    Thy bounty, LORD Most High, for aye!
