You heard my plea: "Do not close your ears to my cry for relief."
You have heard my voice, "Do not hide Your ear from my prayer for relief, From my cry for help."
and you heard me! You listened to my pleading; you heard my weeping!
You listened when I called out, 'Don't shut your ears! Get me out of here! Save me!'
My voice came to you; let not your ear be shut to my breathing, to my cry.
you heard my plea, "Do not close your ear to my cry for help, but give me relief!"
You have heard my voice: "Do not hide Your ear From my sighing, from my cry for help."
