(Week 26 of the year: Wednesday)
R. Let my prayer come into your presence, O Lord.
1. I call to you, Lord, all the day long;
to you I stretch out my hands.
Will you work wonders for the dead?
Will the shades stand and praise you? (R.)
2. Will your love be told in the grave
or your faithfulness among the dead?
Will your wonders be known in the dark
or your justice in the land of oblivion? (R.)
3. As for me, Lord, I call to you for help:
in the morning my prayer comes before you.
Lord, why do you reject me?
Why do you hide your face?
Your word is a lamp for my steps
and a light for my path.
