Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

How long wilt thou forget me, Lord, Must I forever mourn

How long wilt thou forget me, Lord, Must I forever mourn

Published in 25 hymnals

Representative Text

1 How long wilt thou forget me, Lord?
must I forever mourn?
How long wilt thou withdraw from me,
Oh, never to return?
2 How long shall anxious Thoughts my Soul,
and Grief my Heart oppress?
How long my Enemies insult,
and I have no Redress?

3 O, hear! and to my longing Eyes
restore thy wonted Light;
And suddenly, or I shall sleep
in everlasting Night.
4 Restore me, lest they proudly boast
'twas their own Strength o'ercame;
Permit not them that vex my Soul,
to triumph in my Shame.

5 Since I have always plac'd my Trust
beneath thy Mercy's Wing,
Thy saving Health will come, and then
my Heart with Joy shall spring;
6 Then shall my Song, with Praise inspir'd,
to thee, my God, ascend,
Who to thy Servant in Distress,
such Bounty didst extend.
