Answer me when I call, my saving God.
When troubles hem me in, set me free;
take pity on me, hear my prayer.
How long, O people, will you be hard of heart?
Why do you love what is worthless, chase after lies?
Know that the Lord works wonders for his faithful one;
the Lord hears when I call out to him.
Tremble and sin no more;
weep bitterly within your hearts,
wail upon your beds,
Offer fitting sacrifices
and trust in the Lord.
Many say, “May we see better times!
Lord, show us the light of your face!”
But you have given my heart more joy that they have when grain and wine abound.
In peace I will lie down and fall asleep, for you alone, Lord, make me secure.
