P  S  A  L .   X  I  I  I   (13)

To him that excelleth. A Psalme of David.

1   HOw long wilt thou forget me, O Lord, for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
2   How long shall I take counsel within myselfe, having wearinesse dayly in mine heart? how long shall mine enemie be exalted above me?
3   Behold, and heare mee, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, that I sleepe not in death:
4   Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him: and they that afflict me, rejoyce when I slide.
5   But I trust in thy mercy: mine heart shall rejoyce in thy salvation: I will sing to the Lord, because hee hath dealt lovingly with me.
