My Affliction

I remember my affliction and my


the bitterness and the gall.

I well remember them,

and my soul is downcast within me.

Yet this I recall to mind

and therefore I have hope:

Because of the Lord’s great love we are

not consumed,

for His compassions never fail.

They are new every morning;

great is Your faithfulness.

I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;

therefore I will wait for Him.”

Lamentations 3.19-24
