    Do Not Hide Your Face From Me
    A Prayer Of The Afflicted, When He Is Overwhelmed And Poureth Out His Complaint Before The Lord

    Psalms 102
    King James Version

    1 Hear my prayer, O Lord,
    and let my cry come unto thee.​
    2 Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble;
    incline thine ear unto me:
    in the day when I call answer me speedily.​

    3 For my days are consumed like smoke,
    and my bones are burned as an hearth.​
    4 My heart is smitten, and withered like grass;
    so that I forget to eat my bread.​
    5 By reason of the voice of my groaning
    my bones cleave to my skin.​
    6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness:
    I am like an owl of the desert.​
    7 I watch,
    and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.​

    8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day;
    and they that are mad against me are sworn against me.​
    9 For I have eaten ashes like bread,
    and mingled my drink with weeping.​
    10 Because of thine indignation and thy wrath:
    for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.​
    11 My days are like a shadow that declineth;
    and I am withered like grass.​

    12 But thou, O Lord, shall endure for ever;
    and thy remembrance unto all generations.​
    13 Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion:
    for the time to favour her,
    yea, the set time, is come.​
    14 For thy servants take pleasure in her stones,
    and favour the dust thereof.​
    15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord,
    and all the kings of the earth thy glory.​
    16 When the Lord shall build up Zion,
    he shall appear in his glory.​
    17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute,
    and not despise their prayer.​

    18 This shall be written for the generation to come:
    and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord.​
    19 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary;
    from heaven did the Lord behold the earth;​
    20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner;
    to loose those that are appointed to death;​
    21 To declare the name of the Lord in Zion,
    and his praise in Jerusalem;​
    22 When the people are gathered together,
    and the kingdoms, to serve the Lord.​

    23 He weakened my strength in the way;
    he shortened my days.​
    24 I said, O my God,
    take me not away in the midst of my days:
    thy years are throughout all generations.​
    25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth:
    and the heavens are the work of thy hands.​
    26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure:
    yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment;
    as a vesture shalt thou change them,
    and they shall be changed:​
    27 But thou art the same,
    and thy years shall have no end.​
    28 The children of thy servants shall continue,
    and their seed shall be established before thee.

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
