  5. Lamentations 3 17-26  

A reading from the book of Lamentation


My soul is deprived of Peace,

I have forgotten what happiness is;

I tell myself my future is not lost

All that I hoped for from the Lord.

The thought of my homeless poverty

Is wormwood and gall;

Remembering it over and over

Leaves my soul downcast within me.

But I will call this to mind,

As my reason to have hope:

The favors of the Lord are not exhausted,

His mercies are not spent:

They are renewed each morning,

So great is his faithfulness.

My portion is the Lord, says my soul;

Therefore will I hope in him.

Good is the Lord to one who waits for him,

To the soul that seeks him;

It is good to hope in silence

For saving the help of the Lord.


This is the Word of the Lord.
