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