O Lord, the God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before you.

The LORD, the God of my salvation,I have cried day and night before you. +
Let my prayer enter into your presence.Turn your ear to my cry.
For my soul is full of troubles.My life draws near to Sheol. +
I am counted among those who go down into the pit.I am like a man who has no help, +
set apart among the dead,like the slain who lie in the grave,whom you remember no more.They are cut off from your hand. +
You have laid me in the lowest pit,in the darkest depths. +
Your wrath lies heavily on me.You have afflicted me with all your waves.Selah. +
You have taken my friends from me.You have made me an abomination to them.I am confined, and I can't escape. +
My eyes are dim from grief.I have called on you daily, The LORD.I have spread out my hands to you. +
Do you show wonders to the dead?Do the departed spirits rise up and praise you?Selah. +
Is your loving kindness declared in the grave?Or your faithfulness in Destruction? +
Are your wonders made known in the dark?Or your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
But to you, The LORD, I have cried.In the morning, my prayer comes before you. +
The LORD, why do you reject my soul?Why do you hide your face from me? +
I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up.While I suffer your terrors, I am distracted. +
Your fierce wrath has gone over me.Your terrors have cut me off. +
They came around me like water all day long.They completely engulfed me.
You have put lover and friend far from me,and my friends into darkness. +
