Psalm 77


In the Day of Trouble I Seek the Lord



 TO THE CHOIRMASTER: ACCORDING TO JEDUTHUN. A PSALM OF ASAPH. 


      1 I cry aloud to God, 

      aloud to God, and he will hear me. 

      2 In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord; 

      in the night my hand is stretched out without wearying; 

      my soul refuses to be comforted. 

      3 When I remember God, I moan; 

      when I meditate, my spirit faints. Selah 


      4 You hold my eyelids open; 

      I am so troubled that I cannot speak. 

      5 I consider the days of old, 

      the years long ago. 

      6 I said, “Let me remember my song in the night; 

      let me meditate in my heart.” 

      Then my spirit made a diligent search: 

      7 “Will the Lord spurn forever, 

      and never again be favorable? 

      8 Has his steadfast love forever ceased? 

      Are his promises at an end for all time? 

      9 Has God forgotten to be gracious? 

      Has he in anger shut up his compassion?” Selah 


      10 Then I said, “I will appeal to this, 

      to the years of the right hand of the Most High.” 


      11 I will remember the deeds of the LORD; 

      yes, I will remember your wonders of old. 

      12 I will ponder all your work, 

      and meditate on your mighty deeds. 

      13 Your way, O God, is holy. 

      What god is great like our God? 

      14 You are the God who works wonders; 

      you have made known your might among the peoples. 

      15 You with your arm redeemed your people, 

      the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah 


      16 When the waters saw you, O God, 

      when the waters saw you, they were afraid; 

      indeed, the deep trembled. 

      17 The clouds poured out water; 

      the skies gave forth thunder; 

      your arrows flashed on every side. 

      18 The crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind; 

      your lightnings lighted up the world; 

      the earth trembled and shook. 

      19 Your way was through the sea, 

      your path through the great waters; 

      yet your footprints were unseen. 

      20 You led your people like a flock 

      by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
