Lamentations 3:19-24

I remember my affliction and my wandering,

the bitterness and the gall. 

I well remember them,

and my soul is downcast within me.

Yet this I call to mind

and therefore I have hope: 

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,

for his compassions never fail. 

They are new every morning;

great is your faithfulness.

I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;

therefore I will wait for him.”
