Zion's Prayer for Mercy

Remember, The LORD, what has come on us.Look, and see our reproach. +
Our inheritance has been turned over to strangers,our houses to aliens. +
We are orphans and fatherless.Our mothers are as widows. +
We have drunken our water for money.Our wood is sold to us. +
Our pursuers are on our necks.We are weary, and have no rest. +
We have given our hands to the Egyptians,and to the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread. +
Our fathers sinned, and are no more.We have borne their iniquities. +
Servants rule over us.There is no one to deliver us out of their hand. +
We get our bread at the peril of our lives,because of the sword of the wilderness. +
Our skin is black like an oven,because of the burning heat of famine. +
They ravished the women in Zion,the virgins in the cities of Judah. +
Princes were hanged up by their hands.The faces of elders were not honored. +
The young men carry millstones.The children stumbled under loads of wood. +
The elders have ceased from the gate,and the young men from their music. +
The joy of our heart has ceased.Our dance is turned into mourning.
The crown has fallen from our head.Woe to us, for we have sinned! +
For this our heart is faint.For these things our eyes are dim. +
For the mountain of Zion, which is desolate.The foxes walk on it. +
You, The LORD, remain forever.Your throne is from generation to generation. +
Why do you forget us forever,and forsake us for so long a time? +
Turn us to yourself, The LORD, and we will be turned.Renew our days as of old. +
But you have utterly rejected us.You are very angry against us.
