Usquequo, Domine, oblivisceris me

1 [In finem. Psalmus David.]
  Usquequo, Domine, oblivisceris me 
  in finem? usquequo avertis faciem tuam a me?
2 quamdiu ponam consilia in anima mea; 
  dolorem in corde meo per diem?
3 usquequo exaltabitur inimicus meus super me?
4 Respice, et exaudi me, Domine Deus meus.
  Illumina oculos meos, ne umquam obdormiam in morte;
5 nequando dicat inimicus meus: 
  Prævalui adversus eum.
  Qui tribulant me exsultabunt si motus fuero;
6 ego autem in misericordia tua speravi. 
  Exsultabit cor meum in salutari tuo.
  Cantabo Domino qui bona tribuit mihi; 
  et psallam nomini Domini altissimi.

Psalm 13
Language: English  after the Latin 
     A prayer for help in trouble; To the chief musician, a Psalm of David.
1  How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? for ever?  
   How long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
2  How long shall I take counsel in my soul, 
   having sorrow in my heart daily?  
   How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
3  Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, 
   lest I sleep the sleep of death;
4  lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; 
   and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
5  But I have trusted in thy mercy; 
   my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
6  I will sing unto the Lord, 
   because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
