[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] 
Lam 3:17 I have forgotten what health and peace and happiness are.
Lam 3:18 I do not have much longer to live; my hope in the LORD is gone.
Lam 3:19 The thought of my pain, my homelessness, is bitter poison.
Lam 3:20 I think of it constantly, and my spirit is depressed.
Lam 3:21 Yet hope returns when I remember this one thing:
Lam 3:22 The LORD's unfailing love and mercy still continue,
Lam 3:23 Fresh as the morning, as sure as the sunrise.
Lam 3:24 The LORD is all I have, and so in him I put my hope.
Lam 3:25 The LORD is good to everyone who trusts in him,
Lam 3:26 So it is best for us to wait in patience---to wait for him to save us---
Lam 3:27 And it is best to learn this patience in our youth.
Lam 3:28 When we suffer, we should sit alone in silent patience;
Lam 3:29 We should bow in submission, for there may still be hope.
Lam 3:30 Though beaten and insulted, we should accept it all.
Lam 3:31 The Lord is merciful and will not reject us forever.
Lam 3:32 He may bring us sorrow, but his love for us is sure and strong.
Lam 3:33 He takes no pleasure in causing us grief or pain.
