A Psalme committed to Asaph.
1
My voyce came to God, when I cryed: my voyce came to God, and he heard me.
2
In the day of my trouble I sought ye Lord: my sore ranne and ceased not in the night: my soule refused comfort.
3
I did thinke vpon God, & was troubled: I praied, and my spirit was full of anguish.
Selah.
4
Thou keepest mine eyes waking: I was astonied and could not speake.
5
Then I considered the daies of olde, and the yeeres of ancient time.
6
I called to remembrance my song in the night: I communed with mine owne heart, and my spirit searched diligently.
7
Will the Lorde absent him selfe for euer?
and will he shewe no more fauour?
8
Is his mercie cleane gone for euer?
doeth his promes faile for euermore?
9
Hath God forgotten to be mercifull?
hath he shut vp his teder mercies in displeasure?
Selah.
10
And I sayde, This is my death: yet I remembred the yeeres of the right hand of the most High.
11
I remembred the workes of the Lorde: certainely I remembred thy wonders of olde.
12
I did also meditate all thy woorkes, and did deuise of thine actes, saying,
13
Thy way, O God, is in the Sanctuarie: who is so great a God as our God!
14
Thou art ye God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy power among the people.
15
Thou hast redeemed thy people with thine arme, euen the sonnes of Iaakob & Ioseph.
Selah.
16
The waters sawe thee, O God: the waters sawe thee, and were afraide: yea, the depths trembled.
17
The cloudes powred out water: the heauens gaue a sounde: yea, thine arrowes went abroade.
18
The voyce of thy thunder was rounde about: the lightnings lightened the worlde: the earth trembled and shooke.
19
Thy way is in the Sea, and thy paths in the great waters, & thy footesteps are not knowen.
20
Thou diddest leade thy people like sheepe by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
