Psalms 88
New Living Translation
88[For the choir director: A psalm of the descendants of Korah. A song to be sung to the tune “The Suffering of Affliction.” A psalm of Heman the Ezrahite.] O Lord, God of my salvation, I cry out to you by day. I come to you at night.H7892H4210H1121H7141H5329H4257H6031H4905H1968H250H3068H430H3444H6817H3117H3915 2Now hear my prayer; listen to my cry.H8605H935H6440H5186H241H7440 3For my life is full of troubles, and death draws near.H5315H7646H7451H2416H5060H7585 4I am as good as dead, like a strong man with no strength left.H2803H3381H953H1397H353 5They have left me among the dead, and I lie like a corpse in a grave. I am forgotten, cut off from your care.H2670H4191H2491H7901H6913H2142H1504H3027 6You have thrown me into the lowest pit, into the darkest depths.H7896H8482H953H4285H4688 7Your anger weighs me down; with wave after wave you have engulfed me. InterludeH2534H5564H6031H4867H5542 8You have driven my friends away by making me repulsive to them. I am in a trap with no way of escape.H7368H3045H7368H7896H8441H3607H3318 9My eyes are blinded by my tears. Each day I beg for your help, O Lord; I lift my hands to you for mercy.H5869H1669H6040H3068H7121H3117H7849H3709 10Are your wonderful deeds of any use to the dead? Do the dead rise up and praise you? InterludeH6213H6382H4191H7496H6965H3034H5542 11Can those in the grave declare your unfailing love? Can they proclaim your faithfulness in the place of destruction?H2617H5608H6913H530H11 12Can the darkness speak of your wonderful deeds? Can anyone in the land of forgetfulness talk about your righteousness?H6382H3045H2822H6666H776H5388 13O Lord, I cry out to you. I will keep on pleading day by day.H7768H3068H1242H8605H6923 14O Lord, why do you reject me? Why do you turn your face from me?H3068H2186H5315H5641H6440 15I have been sick and close to death since my youth. I stand helpless and desperate before your terrors.H6041H1478H5290H5375H367H6323 16Your fierce anger has overwhelmed me. Your terrors have paralyzed me.H2740H5674H1161H6789 17They swirl around me like floodwaters all day long. They have engulfed me completely.H5437H3117H4325H5362H3162 18You have taken away my companions and loved ones. Darkness is my closest friend.H157H7453H7368H3045H4285
