REFRAIN: My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?

All who see me deride me;
     they curl their lips, they toss their heads:
“He trusted in the LORD, let him save him;
     let him release him, for in him he delights.”

For dogs have surrounded me;
     a band of the wicked besets me.
They tear holes in my hands and my feet;
     I can count every one of my bones.

They divide my clothing among them,
     they cast lots for my robe.
But you, O LORD, do not stay afar off;
     my strength, make haste to help me!

I will tell of your name to my kin,
     and praise you in the midst of the assembly;
“You who fear the LORD, give him praise;
     all descendants of Jacob, give him glory;
     revere him, all you descendants of Israel.
