uplifting thoughts and inspiration on faith
How long will You forget me, O Lord?
How long will You hide Your face from me?
How long must I lay up cares within me and have sorrow in my heart day after day?
How long shall my enemy exalt himself over me?
Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;
Lighten the eyes [of my faith to behold Your face in the pitchlike darkness], lest I sleep the sleep of death, lest my enemy say, I have prevailed over him, and those that trouble me rejoice when I am shaken.
But I have trusted, leaned on, and been confident in Your mercy and loving-kindness; my heart shall rejoice and be in high spirits in Your salvation.
