1 My God, my God, why leav'st thou me,
When I with anguish faint?
O why so far from me remov'd,
And from my loud complaint.

2 My blood like water's spill'd, my joints
Are rack'd, and out of frame;
My heart dissolves within my breast,
Like wax before the flame.

3 My strength, like potters earth, is parch'd';
My tongue cleaves to my jaws;
And to the silent shades of death
My fainting soul withdraws.

4 Like blood-hounds to surround me, they
In pack'd assemblies meet;
They pierc'd my inoffensive hands,
They pierc'd my harmless feet.

5 As spoil my garments they divide,
Lots for my vesture cast;
Therefore approach, O Lord, my strength,
And to my succour haste.
