Will You turn from me Your face forever oh Lord? Will You take from me Your favor? My struggle consumes me I am drawn into the grave Lord will You not rescue me? Will You not fly to my aid? I am weary and broken down My very being is detestable in my eyes Lord, will You not comfort me?
Yet I know the Lord is faithful He remembers His child in the dark He saves His sons from peril And His daughters from despair
Lord my soul cries for You! My spirit screams and wails through the night! My heart weeps for Your mercy! My God! My God! My Savior! Be swift in Your deliverance! Be merciful to this unfaithful servant! You are just oh Lord You have purchased my life with blood And with it I am cleansed
