My God, my God, why have you forsaken me
Why are you so far from helping me,
from the words of my groaning?
O my God, I cry by day, but you do not answer
And by night, but find no rest.
I am poured out like water
And all my bones are out of joint.
My heart has turned to wax. It has melted away within me.
But you, O Lord, be not far off.
O my strength, come quickly to help me.
Deliver my soul from the sword.
