PSALM 13, by            
First Line: How long, o lord, shall I forgotten be?
Last Line: Song's ditty.


How long, O Lord, shall I forgotten be?
What? Ever?
How long wilt thou thy hidden face from me
Dissever?

How long shall I consult with careful sprite
In anguish?
How long shall I with foes' triumphant might
Thus languish?

Behold me, Lord! Let to thy hearing creep
My crying:
Nay, give me eyes, and light, lest that I sleep
In dying.

Lest my foe brag, that in my ruin he
Prevailed,
And at my fall they joy that, troublous, me
Assailed.

No, no, I trust in thee, and joy in thy
Great pity;
Still therefore of thy graces shall be my
Song's ditty.
