Psalm 13

Douglas Wilson, 2000 ©

  1. How long, O LORD, will You forget?
    I lift my prayer to You and yet
    You do not hear my meditation;
    You still refuse my supplication.
    I live in sorrow and regret.
  2. How long will all my foes exult?
    Why must they taunt and still insult?
    O LORD, my God, my prayer consider,
    Sustain my eyes, my cry consider,
    Lest I come down to death’s cold vault.
  3. Why should my foes my fortress scale?
    Why do You let them still assail?
    But I have trusted Your salvation,
    And I rejoice with exultation;
    I sing; God’s bounty will prevail.
