Have mercy on my weakness;
Heal me of the terror that paralyzes me.
My spirit trembles in dread before you;
How long, O Lord, how long?
Turn to me and redeem me;
Save me because of your love and mercy.
You are the God of the living;
Do not silence my praise with the grave.
I am done with crying;
For my body is spent from weeping.
I can no longer see joy;
For my enemies cloud my vision.
Hear and flee my enemies;
For the Lord is listening.
The Lord knows my heart;
He accepts my cry for mercy.
Let evil hide its face;
For my enemies shall flee in the presence of God
