- For the Chief Musician;
after the manner of Jeduthan.
A Psalm of Asaph.
- I will cry unto God with my voice, Even unto God with my voice;
and he will give ear unto me.
- In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: My hand was stretched out in the night, and slacked not;
My soul refused to be comforted.
- I remember God, and am disquieted: I complain, and my spirit is overwhelmed.
- Thou holdest mine eyes watching: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
- I have considered the days of old, The years of ancient times.
- I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart;
And my spirit maketh diligent search.
- Will the Lord cast off for ever?
And will he be favorable no more?
- Is his lovingkindness clean gone for ever?
Doth his promise fail for evermore?
- Hath God forgotten to be gracious?
Hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies?
- And I said, This is my infirmity;
[But I will remember] the years of the right hand of the Most High.
- I will make mention of the deeds of Jehovah;
For I will remember thy wonders of old.
- I will meditate also upon all thy work, And muse on thy doings.
- Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: Who is a great god like unto God?
- Thou art the God that doest wonders: Thou hast made known thy strength among the peoples.
- Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, The sons of Jacob and Joseph.
- The waters saw thee, O God;
The waters saw thee, they were afraid: The depths also trembled.
- The clouds poured out water;
The skies sent out a sound: Thine arrows also went abroad.
- The voice of thy thunder was in the whirlwind;
The lightnings lightened the world: The earth trembled and shook.
- Thy way was in the sea, And thy paths in the great waters, And thy footsteps were not known.
- Thou leddest thy people like a flock, By the hand of Moses and Aaron.
