Psalm 13 (Crescendo)

How long?
How long, O LORD?
Have You forgotten me?
Will You not answer me a word?

Hear me!
Consider me!
Restore light to my eyes;
Don’t let my foes stand mockingly!

But I,
I will trust You,
Your faithful love to me;
I look for and sing my rescue.

*I’ve named this form “Crescendo” because each stanza builds in volume (both in syllables and intensity). It’s iambic meter, and each successive line adds an iamb.
