8 Do not remember against us the sin of former times:
but let your compassion hasten to meet us, for we are brought very low.
9 Help us, O God our saviour, for the honour of your name:
O deliver us and expiate our sins, for your name's sake.
10 Why should the heathen say "Where is their God?":
O let vengeance for the blood of your servants that is shed be shown upon the nations in our sight.
11 Let the sorrowful sighing of the prisoners come before you:
and as your power is great, reprieve those condemned to die.
Seek love in the pity of another's woe,Jim Cotter Prayer at Night, A Book for the Darkness. p 72
In the gentle relief of another's care,
In the darkness of night and the winter's snow,
In the naked and outcast — seek love there.
