From the album Shadows
My God, my God,
why have you abandoned me?
Why so far from my plea
and the cry of my distress?
O my God I cry by day
and you give me no reply;
I call by night
but I find no peace.
Yet you are holy
enthroned on the praise of Israel.
In you our fathers put their trust,
they trusted and you set them free.
To you they cried and were saved,
they trusted you and never in vain.
Yet it was you who took me from the womb,
entrusted me to my mother’s breast.
To you I was committed from my birth,
from my mother’s womb you have been my God.
Do not leave me alone, trouble is near;
come close there is none else to help.
I am poured out like water,
and all my bones are out of joint.
My heart is like wax,
it is melted within my breast.
I can count all my bones.
There people stare at me and gloat;
they divide my clothing among them,
they cast lots for my robe.
O Lord do not leave me alone,
my strength come quickly to my aid.
