Psalm 13: I Have Trusted In Thy Mercy - Poem by King David of Israel

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 take counsel in my soul,
having sorrow in my heart daily?
how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

3 Consider and hear me, O LORD my God:
lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

4 Lest mine enemy say,
I have prevailed against him;
and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

5 But I have trusted in thy mercy;
my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.

6 I will sing unto the LORD,
because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

(KJV)
