Save me, God.
I cry out to you.
I lift my hands in distress,
The water has risen up to my neck.
Drowning in my own tears,
My eyes fail, looking for my God,
Answer me quickly!
I am consumed with zeal
For your holy temple,
I seek you, my Savior,
I chase after your heart, oh God,
To the world I have become a stranger-
I am a foreigner in my own land,
But I will take heart,
For you hear my prayer.
Oh God, you do not despise your children
Who are prisoners.
Answer me, Lord,
For your faithful love is good;
In keeping with your great compassion,
Turn to me.
In keeping with your faithfulness,
And in keeping with your abundant mercy,
