Lyrics: Psalm 13

Usquequo, Domine, oblivisceris me in finem: usquequo avertis faciem tuam a me?
Quamdiu ponam consilia in anima mea, dolorem in corde meo per diem: usquequo exaltabitur inimicus meus super me?
Respice, et exaudi me, Domine Deus meus: illumina oculos meos, ne umquam obdormiam in morte.
Nequando dicat inimicus meus, prævalui adversus eum: qui tribulant me exultabunt si motus fuero.
Ego autem in misericordia tua speravi: exultabit cor meum in salutari tuo.
Cantabo Domino qui bona tribuit mihi: et psallam nomini Domini altissimi.

How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord, for ever: how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
How long shall I seek counsel in my soul, and be so vexed in my heart: how long shall mine enemies triumph over me?
Consider, and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, that I sleep not in death.
Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him: for if I be cast down, they that trouble me will rejoice at it.
But my trust is in thy mercy: and my heart is joyful in thy salvation.
I will sing of the Lord, because he hath dealt so lovingly with me: yea, I will praise the Name of the Lord most Highest.
