Psalm 6
Every night I will wash my bed

LORD DO NOT/ accuse me in your rage: nor/ in your anger rep/roach me./ Have mercy on me/ lord because I am/ weak: heal me/ lord because my bones are diseased./ And my soul is troubled intensely:/ and you lord how long./ Turn round lord and rescue my soul:/ save me on account of your mercy./ Since there is not in death one who is mindful of you: and in hell who shall confess to you./ I have laboured in my groaning: I will wash my bed throughout each night: with my tears/ I will water my couch./ My eye is troubled by fury: I have grown old/amongst all my enemies./ Depart from me all who work iniquity./
