- [To the chiefe musition vpon Ieduthun,
a psalme of Asaph.]
- My voyce was vnto the Lorde, and I cryed: my voyce was vnto the Lord, and he hearkened vnto me.
- In the tyme of my trouble I sought the Lorde: my hande all the nyght catched & ceassed not, my soule refused comfort.
- I called to remembraunce God, and I was disquieted: I conferred with my selfe, and my spirite was wrapped in pensiuenesse.
- Thou dydst kepe the watche of mine eies: I was amased & coulde not speake.
- I dyd thynke vpon the dayes past: and on the yeres of the olde worlde.
- I called to remembraunce my psalme, song on the musicall instrument in the nyght tyme: I communed with myne owne heart, & searched out my spirites.
- What, wyll the Lorde forsake me for euer?
wyll he be no more intreated to be fauourable?
- Is his mercie cleane gone for euer?
and is his promise made from one generation to another, come vtterly to an ende.
- Hath God forgotten to be gratious?
and will he shut vp his louing kindnesse in displeasure?
- And I sayde, this is my death: but the ryght hande of the most hyghest [may graunt] me yeres.
- I dyd call to remebraunce the workes of God almightie: for thy wonders done a great whyle a goe came into my mynde.
- I also gaue my selfe to muse of all thy workes: and I talked of all thy actes.
- Thy way O Lorde is in holynesse: who is so great a God as the Lorde?
- Thou art the God that doth wonders: thou hast made thy power knowen among the people.
- Thou hast redeemed thy people with a [mightie] arme: the sonnes of Iacob and Ioseph.
- The waters sawe thee O God, the waters sawe thee, they feared: yea the depthes of them moued out of their place.
- Thicke cloudes powred downe rayne, thinne cloudes gaue a noyse: and thine arrowes went abrode into al corners.
- The sounde of thy thunder was rounde about the [sky]: the lightnynges shone through the worlde, the earth quaked and trembled.
- Thy way is in the sea, and thy pathes in the great waters: and thy footesteppes are not knowen.
- Thou dydst leade thy people lyke sheepe: by the hande of Moyses and Aaron.
