METER: CMD (86 86 D)
SUGGESTED TUNE: CLEANSING FOUNTAIN
This is the meter for such hymns as "There Is a Fountain Filled with Blood."
1. How long will you for-get me, Lord?
Will it for-ev-er be?
How long, Lord, will you hide from me?
How long must I bear woe?
How long must I mourn day and night?
How long must foes pre-vail?
Look on me, Lord, and an-swer me;
Give light, or I shall die.
2. Don't let my en-e-mies e'er say
That they''ve de-feat-ed me.
Do not let them gloat over me
Be-cause of my down-fall.
I trust you and your stead-fast love;
I'm glad, for you save me.
I'll sing to you, O Lord, be-cause
You have been good to me.
