1 Forgotten for eternity
is that to be my destiny?
Your face no more to smile on me,
oppressed by every enemy,
my soul enduring agony?
Oh answer me my God;
oh answer me, my God!

2 Restore to me serenity
and, in your gracious charity,
lest I should die, give light to me;
frustrate my gloating adversary,
uplift my soul in ecstasy,
and I'll rejoice, my God;
and I'll rejoice, my God!
