How Long O Lord

How long, O Lord, ’til we see your face?
O God, we hope in you.

How long, O Lord, will you forget me?
How long will you hide your face?
How long must I grieve, crying day and night?
How long shall my enemy prevail?

Look, and answer me, O God!
Give light to my eyes lest I sleep in death,
lest my enemy say: “I have prevailed”;
lest my foes rejoice to see me fall.

As for me, I trust in your love.
Let my heart rejoice in your saving help.
Let me sing to the Lord for his goodness to me,
singing psalms to the name of God Most High.
