PSALM 77 Comfort in Trouble from Recalling God’s Mighty Deeds. For the choir director; according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph. 77 1My voice rises to God, and I will cry aloud; My voice rises to God, and He will hear me. 2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord; In the night my hand was stretched out [Y]without weariness; My soul refused to be comforted. 3When I remember God, then I am disturbed; When I sigh, then my spirit grows faint. [Z]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 [A]ponders: 7Will the Lord reject forever? And will He never be favorable again? 8Has His lovingkindness ceased forever? Has His [B]promise come to an end [C]forever? 9Has God forgotten to be gracious, Or has He in anger [D]withdrawn His compassion? Selah. 10Then I said, “It is my [E]grief, That the right hand of the Most High has changed.” 11I shall remember the deeds of [F]the Lord; Surely I will remember Your wonders of old. 12I will meditate on all Your work And muse on Your deeds. 13Your way, O 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. 15You have by Your [G]power redeemed Your people, The sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah. 16The waters saw You, O God; The waters saw You, they were in anguish; The deeps also trembled. 17The clouds poured out water; The skies gave forth a sound; Your arrows [H]flashed here and there. 18The sound of Your thunder was in the whirlwind; The lightnings 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 may not be known. 20You led Your people like a flock By the hand of Moses and Aaron.
