Lord, my every desire is known to You and my sighing is not hidden from You.
My heart races and my strength fails me. Even the light of my eyes has faded.
My loved ones and friends stand back from my affliction and my relatives stand at a distance.
Those that seek my life set traps for me and those who want to harm me threaten to destroy me and plot treachery all day long.
I am like a deaf man, I do not hear. I am like a speechless person who doesn’t open his mouth. I am like a man that doesn’t hear and has no arguments.
But in You I put my hope, Jehovah, You will answer, Lord my God.
