PSALM 13
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.
