Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am faint;
O LORD, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
My soul is not at peace.
How much longer, O LORD, may this be.
How much longer?
Turn, O LORD, and deliver me;
save me because of your unfailing love.
I am worn out from groaning;
all night long I flood my bed with weeping
and drench my couch with tears.
My eyes grow weak with sorrow;
they fail because of my distress.
The LORD has heard my weeping.
The LORD has heard my cry for mercy;
the LORD accepts my prayer.
