Psalm 13 (Listen)

How Long, O Lord?

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.


13:1   How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever?
    How long will you hide your face from me?
  How long must I take counsel in my soul
    and have sorrow in my heart all the day?
  How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?


  Consider and answer me, O LORD my God;
    light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death,
  lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,”
    lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.


  But I have trusted in your steadfast love;
    my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
  I will sing to the LORD,
    because he has dealt bountifully with me.

(ESV)

KJV Text (alt. audio): Chapter 13:

     1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. 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)


Hymn: TLH 459 :
Come, my Soul, Thy Suit Prepare

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. Come, my soul, thy suit prepare, 
Jesus loves to answer prayer; 
He Himself has bid thee pray, 
Therefore will not say thee nay. 

2. Thou art coming to a King, 
Large petitions with thee bring; 
For His grace and pow’r are such 
None can ever ask too much. 

3. With my burden I begin: 
Lord, remove this load of sin; 
Let Thy blood, for sinners spilt, 
Set my conscience free from guilt. 

4. Lord, I come to Thee for rest, 
Take possession of my breast; 
There Thy blood-bought right maintain 
And without a rival reign. 

5. As the image in the glass 
Answers the beholder’s face, 
Thus unto my heart appear; 
Print Thine own resemblance there. 

6. While I am a pilgrim here, 
Let Thy love my spirit cheer; 
As my Guide, my Guard, my Friend, 
Lead me to my journey’s end. 

7. Show me what I have to do; 
Every hour my strength renew. 
Let me live a life of faith; 
Let me die Thy people’s death.
