Udiah (witness to Yah)

(1959 / USA)

Author's Rendition of Psalm 13


A Psalm of David

How long will You forget me, O Lord, forever?
How long 'til I behold Your face, never?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul
Having day by day in my heart sorrow?

How long shall my enemy
Be exalted over me?

O Lord my God, consider and answer
Strengthen me, lest death be my enhancer
Lest my foe say, 'It's him I have conquered'
And my troublers rejoice when I'm wavered
But I have trusted in Thy compassion
My heart shall rejoice in Thy salvation

Unto the Lord will I sing
For the bounty He did bring

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
