Psalms - Chapter 77

I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me.   1

When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands and my soul refused to be comforted.   2

I remembered you, O God, and I groaned; I mused, and my spirit grew faint.   3

You kept my eyes from closing; I was too troubled to speak.   4

I thought about the former days, the years of long ago;   5

I remembered my songs in the night. My heart mused and my spirit inquired:   6

"Will the Lord reject forever? Will he never show his favor again?   7

Has his unfailing love vanished forever? Has his promise failed for all time?   8

Has God forgotten to be merciful? Has he in anger withheld his compassion?"   9

Then I thought, "To this I will appeal: the years of the right hand of the Most High."   10

I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.   11

I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds.   12

Your ways, O God, are holy. What god is so great as our God?   13

You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.   14

With your mighty arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph.   15

The waters saw you, O God, the waters saw you and writhed; the very depths were convulsed.   16

The clouds poured down water, the skies resounded with thunder; your arrows flashed back and forth.   17

Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind, your lightning lit up the world; the earth trembled and quaked.   18

Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen.   19

You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.   20
