God saves me, rescues. Day and night I cry out before You, continually praying and pleading. Hear me!
My soul is full of trouble – sin, doubt, worry, anger. I am close to death – physical and spiritual. I have no strength left. I am considered as dead – beyond hope.
You are so angry with me that You have put me into the lowest pit – I am overwhelmed. You have removed me from fellowship – my closest friends find me repulsive. I’m trapped and can’t get out.
I call to You every day. Do You show Your wonders to one as dead as I am? Can I rise up and praise You? Does Your love and faithfulness reach to one trapped in hell?
But I still cry – I still pray in the morning. Why aren’t You listening? Why do You reject me? Why do You hide Your face from me?
From my youth, I have been afflicted and close to death. I have suffered terrors, despair, wrath. Your anger has flooded me. You have taken my companions and loved ones. The darkness is my closest friend.
