O LORD, do not rebuke me
Nor chasten me in wrath
For Your arrows have sunk in me
And heavy is Your hand
There is no strength left in me
Because of Your jealous rage
There is no health in my bones
Because of my sins

They have piled over my head
Like a heavy burden they’ve become too much for me to take
My wounds, they reek and fester
From going my own way

I bow my all before You
All day my spirit grieves
For this pain within is burning
There is no strength in me
I’m weak and I am crushed, Lord
I groan from deep inside
O Lord, you know my longing
And I know that when I cry
You will answer
You will answer

My heart is pounding in me
No strength is left within
Even the light of my eyes
Is quickly growing dim
Even my friends and family
Are no longer by my side
Those who hate me seek to trap me
They plan for my demise

Like a deaf man, I can’t hear
Like a mute man who can’t say a word
Forsaken and ostracized
I am like one who can’t hear
In whose mouth is no reply

I bow my all before You
All day my spirit grieves
For this pain within is burning
There is no strength in me
I’m weak and I am crushed, Lord
I groan from deep inside
O Lord, you know my longing
And I know that when I cry
You will answer
You will answer

All my hope is in You, Yahweh
Adonai Elohai, it is You who will answer
For I have prayed, “Don’t give the victory
To my enemies, who rejoice when my foot slips”

For I am ready to fall
And my sorrow will not leave
I confess my sin before You
It’s taken all my peace
For my enemies are mighty
Many hate me without cause
They repay me evil for good
For I stand for righteousness

Do not forsake me, LORD
Oh my God, do not be remote and far away
Oh, hurry to my help, Lord
You are the God who saves

I bow my all before You
All day my spirit grieves
For this pain within is burning
There is no strength in me
I’m weak and I am crushed, Lord
I groan from deep inside
O Lord, you know my longing
And I know that when I cry
You will answer
You will answer
You will answer
You will answer
