From "why me?" to rejoicing in salvation in six verses. Thanks David, I need to learn how to do that!

How Long, O Lord?

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.

1 How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever?
How long will you hide your face from me?

 2 How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?

 3 Consider and answer me, O Lord my God; light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death,

 4 lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,” lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken.

5 But I have trusted in your steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation

6 I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me.
