Cry

My Lord and my God, I cry to You all night long yet the dawn do not carry Your rays.
I cry Father, from the depths of the grave amidst those who hate me.
The accuser stands at my right Lord, and on my left death.
Why do you not answer my Father? I know You love me.

My enemy in the faces of my brothers, how he distracts me from their true faces!
My enemy within my body, how he misleads my every action!
My enemy in the depths of my heart, how i despise his presence!

Save me Lord, for You are my friend,
My refuge from the accuser's snares.
I trust in Your mercy, my beloved Christ
By Your precious Blood cleanse me once more.
