Psalm 22 is a classic lament psalm, a moment of trust amid terror. The text begins with a cry for help, develops through a description of trouble and ends in praise and gratitude.

My God, O My God (Psalm 22)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Refrain
My God, O my God

   Why have You forgotten me?

My God, O my God

   How can You be silent now?

 

i

The dogs are closing in

   My mouth is dry

Where is God in my despair

   So far from my cries

 

ii

Our ancestors put their trust in you

   And you delivered them

I’ve been yours since I was a baby-- no

   even before I was born, even before then

 

iii

I am poured out like water

   My heart is melting

Please do not be distant from me, O God,

   my strength

   Do you hear me call for your help?

 

iv

I will declare your name

   The poor will eat and for once be satisfied

Those who seek the Holy One

   Shall lift their praises, lift their praises high

 

My soul will live for God

   And everyone will stand in awe of God’s love

My children’s children and their children

   will be in God’s heart

   They will proclaim God’s saving love

proclaim God’s saving love

    proclaim God’s saving love

    proclaim God’s saving love

    proclaim God’s saving love…
