My heart sob deep inside me, twinge
Bitterness dawn on me,
As I pour out my inevitable agony!
My friends have abandoned me.
Hopelessness conquers my life.
My body becomes feeble.
My enemies often taunt me.
They constantly derided my dignity,
Tears keep on falling, like the pounding rain.
Life then becomes dreary and messy!
I’m utterly wretched deep within,
Who will cast away the sting?
And understand my life’s sentiments.
My heart cries miserably to the Lord,
He gently whispers comforting words in my heart.
He intensely console my ailing spirit,
And painstakingly washes away my misery.
God heals, restore and replenish my soul;
And create in me real peace and pure joy!
