Psalm 12 (Great Compline, Lent)
(Psalm 13 - Hebrew Numbering)
How long, O Lord, wilt Thou utterly forget me?
How long wilt Thou turn Thy face away from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul with grievings in my heart by day and by night?
How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
Look upon me, hear me, O Lord my God; enlighten mine eyes, lest at any time I sleep unto death.
Lest at any time mine enemy say: I have prevailed against him.
They that afflict me will rejoice if I am shaken; but as for me, I have hoped in Thy mercy.
My heart will rejoice in Thy salvation.
I will sing unto the Lord, Who is my benefactor, and I will chant unto the name of the Lord Most High.
