My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

Why are You so far from helping me?
From the words of my groaning
Oh my God, I cry to You all day long
Still You do not respond
I cry all the night, and have no rest

But You are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel
In You our fathers trusted, they trusted and You delivered them
They cried to You and were rescued
They cried to You and were not put to shame
But I’m a worm

Not a man, the scourge of all mankind
Despised by everyone
They wag their tongues at me, say-ing
Let God rescue him, since He so delights in him!!

But You are He who took me from the womb
You made me trust on my mother’s breasts
I was cast on You from birth
From my mother’s womb You’ve been my God
Do not be far from me
For trouble is near and there is none to help…

Many bulls surround me, strong bulls of Bashan
They open wide their mouths at me like a raging, roaring lion
I am poured out like water and my bones are out of joint
My heart is like wax, it is melted within me
My strength is dried up like a potsherd and my tongue
Clings to my jaws, You’ve laid me in the dust of death
For dogs, they surround me, an evil mob encircles me
They pierced my hands and my feet, I can count my bones
They stare at me and laugh at me, they cast lots for my robes
But You, oh Yahweh, do not be far away
O my strength, come quickly to my aid!
Save me from the sword and the power of the dog
Save me from the lion’s mouth and from the goring horns of the wild bull

You have answered me
You have answered me
You have answered me and I’ll declare Your name to my brothers
In the midst of the assembly I will praise You without shame
Saying, “You who fear the LORD…”

Praise Him, all you offspring of Jacob
Glorify Him and stand in awe of Him, You child – ren of Israel
For He has not despised the affliction of the afflicted
And has not hidden His face from them, but heard when they cried to Him
My praise comes from You in the great congregation
I will perform my vows before those who fear Him
The poor will eat their fill and be satisfied
And those who seek Him shall praise the
LORD, may your heart live forever
May your heart live forever!

All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD
And all the families of the nations will worship You, for
Kingship belongs to the LORD and He rules over the nations
And all the prosperous of the earth shall eat and worship

Before Him shall go down all who go down to the dust
Even those who could not keep themselves alive
Posterity shall serve him, it shall be told of the LORD to the next generation
They shall proclaim His righteousness
To a people yet unborn that He, O He, He has done this
O He, He has done this, O He, He has done this
