A Lament
      God of all righteousness, hear when I pray,
         In my distress be my hope and my stay;
      Long I have suffered revilement and shame,
         Great God of mercy, I call on Your name.
      Angry, yet silent, I know there will be
         Justice according to holy decree;
      Never to answer corruption in kind,
         But in Your promise true peace will I find.
      When those around me my faith would confound,
         May I rejoice in Your gifts that abound;
      Peace and assurance all discord withstand,
         Safely I rest in the palm of Your hand.
