In the Day of Trouble I Seek the Lord
To the choirmaster: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.
771I acry aloud to God,
aloud to God, and he will hear me.
2bIn the day of my trouble I seek the Lord;
in cthe night my dhand is stretched out without wearying;
my soul erefuses to be comforted.
3When I remember God, I fmoan;
when I meditate, my spirit faints. Selah
4You hold my eyelids open;
I am so gtroubled that I cannot speak.
5I consider hthe days of old,
the years long ago.
6I said,1 “Let me remember my isong in the night;
let me jmeditate in my heart.”
Then my spirit made a diligent search:
7“Will the Lord kspurn forever,
and never again lbe favorable?
8Has his steadfast love forever ceased?
Are his mpromises at an end for all time?
9nHas God forgotten to be gracious?
oHas he in anger shut up his compassion?” Selah
10Then I said, “I will appeal to this,
to the years of the pright hand of the Most High.”2
11I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I will qremember your wonders of old.
12I will ponder all your rwork,
and meditate on your smighty deeds.
13Your way, O God, is tholy.
uWhat god is great like our God?
14You are the God who vworks wonders;
you have wmade known your might among the peoples.
15You xwith your arm redeemed your people,
the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah
16When ythe waters saw you, O God,
when the waters saw you, they were afraid;
indeed, the deep trembled.
17The clouds poured out water;
the skies zgave forth thunder;
your aarrows flashed on every side.
18bThe crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind;
cyour lightnings lighted up the world;
the earth dtrembled and shook.
19Your eway was through the sea,
your path through the great waters;
yet your footprints fwere unseen.3
20You gled your people like a flock
by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
