R. In your great love, answer me, O God.
1. More numerous than the hairs on my head
are those who hate me without cause.
Those who attack me with lies
are too much for my strength.
How can I restore
what I have never stolen? (R.)
2. It is for you that I suffer taunts,
that shame covers my face,
that I have become a stranger to my brothers,
an alien to my own mother’s sons.
I burn with zeal for your house
and taunts against you fall on me. (R.)
3. This is my prayer to you,
my prayer for your favour.
In your great love, answer me, O God,
with your help that never fails. (R.)
Accept God’s message for what it really is:
God’s message, and not some human thinking.
