Psalm 77

To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of Asaph.


^1Unto the Lord I with my voice,

I unto God did cry;

Ev'n with my voice, and unto me

his ear he did apply.

^2I in my trouble sought the Lord,

my sore by night did run,

And ceased not; my grieved soul

did consolation shun.

^3I to remembrance God did call,

yet trouble did remain;

And overwhelm'd my spirit was,

whilst I did sore complain.

^4Mine eyes, debarr'd from rest and sleep,

thou makest still to wake;

My trouble is so great that I

unable am to speak.

^5The days of old to mind I call'd,

and oft did think upon

The times and ages that are past

full many years agone.

^6By night my song I call to mind,

and commune with my heart;

My sp'rit did carefully enquire

how I might ease my smart.

^7For ever will the Lord cast off,

and gracious be no more?

^8For ever is his mercy gone?

fails his word evermore?

^9Is't true that to be gracious

the Lord forgotten hath?

And that his tender mercies he

hath shut up in his wrath?

^10Then did I say, That surely this

is mine infirmity:

I'll mind the years of the right hand

of him that is most High.

^11Yea, I remember will the works

performed by the Lord:

The wonders done of old by thee

I surely will record.

^12I also will of all thy works

my meditation make;

And of thy doings to discourse

great pleasure I will take.

^13O God, thy way most holy is

within thy sanctuary;

And what god is so great in pow'r

as is our God most high?

^14Thou art the God that wonders do'st

by thy right hand most strong:

Thy mighty pow'r thou hast declar'd

the nations among.

^15To thine own people with thine arm

thou didst redemption bring;

To Jacob's sons, and to the tribes

of Joseph that do spring.

^16The waters, Lord, perceived thee,

the waters saw thee well;

And they for fear aside did flee;

the depths on trembling fell.

^17The clouds in water forth were pour'd,

sound loudly did the sky;

And swiftly through the world abroad

thine arrows fierce did fly.

^18Thy thunder's voice alongst the heav'n

a mighty noise did make;

By lightnings lighten'd was the world,

th' earth tremble did and shake.

^19Thy way is in the sea, and in

the waters great thy path;

Yet are thy footsteps hid, O Lord;

none knowledge thereof hath.

^20Thy people thou didst safely lead,

like to a flock of sheep;

By Moses' hand and Aaron's thou

didst them conduct and keep.
