Wie lang, O Herr, wie lange soll.--(Goed. 178.)

Appeared in Crü. Praxis, 1656, no. 365.

Translated by J. Kelly, 1867, p. 235, in seven stanzas of seven lines each. The rhyme and metre have been altered after the first four lines in each 63 stanza, with the result that the version is one of this translator's least successful contributions.

Stanza 1. How long, Lord, in forgetfullness
And darkness wilt Thou leave me?
How long will sorrow on me press
And deep heart-anguish grieve me?
Wilt Thou Thy face, Lord, utterly
Turn from me? wilt ne'er look on me
In grace and in compassion?

Befiehl du deine Wege.--(Goed. 185.)

(Cf. p. 114 ff.)
