How long, O Lord
Will you forget me forever
How long will you hide your face from me
From me

How long will I hide my face from you
From you
Having sorrow in my heart all the day
All the day

Consider and answer me, O Lord my God
Enlighten my eyes
Or I'll sleep the sleep of death

Arise, O Lord
Lift up your hand, do not forget me
For you have seen suffering and grief
And you take up the poor in your hand
You have heard the cries of the weak
You will strengthen their hearts
You will save the orphan, oppressed
Man will cause terror no more

You are my rock, my refuge, my strength
You are my hope, my light, my guide
You proved your love on a cross made of wood
And you live that death may die
