1 How long, O Lord, will you forget
an answer to my prayer?
No tokens of your love I see,
your face is turned away from me;
I wrestle with despair.

2 How long, O Lord, will you forsake
and leave me in this way?
When will you come to my relief?
My heart is overwhelmed with grief,
by evil night and day.

3 How long, O Lord - but you forgive,
with mercy from above.
I find that all your ways are just,
I learn to praise you and to trust
in your unfailing love.

After Psalm 13, Barbara Woollett (born 1937)
