A Prayer of Faith in Time of Distress

To the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. On an eight-stringed harp. A Psalm of David.
  1O Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger,
   Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure.
   2Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak;
   O Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled.
   3My soul also is greatly troubled;
   But You, O Lord—how long?
  4Return, O Lord, deliver me!
   Oh, save me for Your mercies’ sake!
   5For in death there is no remembrance of You;
   In the grave who will give You thanks?
  6I am weary with my groaning;
   All night I make my bed swim;
   I drench my couch with my tears.
   7My eye wastes away because of grief;
   It grows old because of all my enemies.
  8Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity;
   For the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping.
   9The Lord has heard my supplication;
   The Lord will receive my prayer.
   10Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled;
   Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.
