Lord, how long will you hide yourself? Will it be forever?
How long will your anger burn like fire?
Remember how short my life is.
You have created all people for such a useless purpose!
Who can live and not die?
Who can escape the power of the grave?
Lord, where is the great love you used to have?
You faithfully promised it to David.
Lord, remember how my enemies have made fun of me.
I’ve had to put up with mean words from all the nations.
Lord, your enemies have said mean things.
They have laughed at everything your anointed king has done.
Give praise to the Lord forever!
Amen and Amen.
