Monday Psalms, Psalm 42 (41)

Why are you cast download, O my soul, and why are you disquieted within me? My soul is cast down within me … Deep calls to deep … By the day the Lord commands His steadfast love; and at night His song is with me.

42 Blues
My soul cries in agony
As deep calls to deep
Why have You forgotten me
When all I can do is weep

Yet Your song remains within
Because Your commands are love
From here I know You begin
Over the waves flies the dove

Feel stuck in a hole
Downcast in my soul
Got the 42 Blues
