My God, My Help is from Sandra McCracken.
It draws on imagery reminiscent of the Psalms as an expression of lament and trust.

1.
Why are you so full of heaviness?
Why are you disquieted within?
O my soul, O my soul
2.
As the deer longs for the water brooks
So my soul it longs, it thirsts for you
O my God, O my God
Chorus.
Put your trust in God, I will yet give thanks to him
Put your trust in God, I will yet give thanks to him
Put your trust in God, I will yet give thanks to him
My help, my God
3.
Deep calls unto deep like ocean waves,
All your floods and rapids on me break
Oh my soul, O my soul
4.
I will say unto my God, my strength,
“How is it you have forgotten me?
O how long? O how long?”
Chorus.
5.
Yahweh grants his kindness in the day
Through the night his song, it is with me.
Oh my God, O my God…
Chorus.
