O Lord, You are my God, I trust in You.
1 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am in distress.
Tears have wasted my eyes, my throat, and my heart.
2 For my life is spent with sorrow and my years with sighs.
Affliction has broken down my strength and my bones waste away.
3 In the face of all my foes I am a reproach,
An object of scorn to my neighbors and of fear to my friends.
4 Those who see me in the street run far away from me.
I am like the dead, forgotten by all, like a thing thrown away.
5 I have heard the slander of the crowd, fear is all around me,
As they plot together against me, as they plan to take my life.
6 But as for me, I trust in You, Lord, I say: You are my God.
My life is in Your hands deliver me from the hands of those who hate me.
7 Let Your face shine upon Your servant.
Save me in Your love.
