(A)For the Lord has called you
    like a wife deserted and grieved in spirit,
like a wife of youth when she is cast off,
    says your God.
(B)For a brief moment I deserted you,
    but with great compassion I will gather you.
(C)In overflowing anger for a moment
    I hid my face from you,
(D)but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,”
    says the Lord, your Redeemer.

    I will have compassion(K) on you,”
