Comfort in Trouble from Recalling God’s Mighty Deeds.
For the music director; [a]according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.
1My voice rises to God, and I will cry aloud;
My voice rises to God, and He will listen to me.
2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord;
In the night my hand was stretched out and did not grow weary;
My soul refused to be comforted.
3When I remember God, then I am restless;
When I sigh, then my spirit feels weak. Selah
4You have held my eyelids open;
I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
5I have considered the days of old,
The years of long ago.
6I will remember my song in the night;
I will meditate with my heart,
And my spirit [b]ponders:
7Will the Lord reject forever?
And will He never be favorable again?
8Has His favor ceased forever?
9Has God forgotten to be gracious,
Or has He in anger [e]withdrawn His compassion? Selah
That the right hand of the Most High has changed.”
I will certainly remember Your wonders of old.
12I will meditate on all Your work,
And on Your deeds with thanksgiving.
13Your way, God, is holy;
What god is great like our God?
14You are the God who works wonders;
You have made known Your strength among the peoples.
The sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah
16The waters saw You, God;
The waters saw You, they were in anguish;
The ocean depths also trembled.
17The clouds poured out water;
The skies [i]sounded out;
Your arrows [j]flashed here and there.
18The sound of Your thunder was in the whirlwind;
The lightning lit up the world;
The earth trembled and shook.
19Your way was in the sea
And Your paths in the mighty waters,
And Your footprints were not known.
20You led Your people like a flock
