Usquequo, Domine?

How long wilt thou forget me, O | LORD; for ever?

* how long wilt thou | hide thy face from me?

2 How long shall I seek counsel in my soul, and be so vexed | in my heart?

* how long shall mine enemy | triumph over me?

3 Consider, and hear me, O | LORD my God;

* lighten mine eyes, that I | sleep not in death;

4 Lest mine enemy say, I have pre- | -vailed against him:

* for if I be cast down, they that trouble me | will rejoice at it.

5 But my trust is | in thy mercy,

* and my heart is | joyful• in thy salvation.

6 I will sing of the LORD, because he hath dealt so | loving•ly with me;

* yea, I will praise the Name | of the Lord Most Highest.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
