My heart is crushed because my dear people 1 are being crushed. 2 I go about crying and grieving. I am overwhelmed with dismay. 3
Since my people are crushed, I am crushed; I mourn, and horror grips me.
For the brokenness of the daughter of my people I am broken; I mourn, dismay has taken hold of me.
I weep for the hurt of my people. I am stunned and silent, mute with grief.
For my dear broken people, I'm heartbroken. I weep, seized by grief.
For the destruction of the daughter of my people I am broken: I am dressed in the clothing of grief; fear has taken me in its grip.
For the hurt of my poor people I am hurt, I mourn, and dismay has taken hold of me.
For the hurt of the daughter of my people I am hurt. I am mourning; Astonishment has taken hold of me.
For the hurt
of the daughter
of my people
am I hurt
I am black
hath taken hold
