1 To the Chief Musician. To Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph. I cried to God with my voice, to God [is] my voice; and He gave ear to me.
2 In the day of my trouble I sought the LORD; my hand was poured in the night, and ceased not; my soul refused to be comforted.
3 I remembered God, and was troubled; I complained, and my spirit fainted. Selah.
4 You keep my eyes awake; I am troubled and I cannot speak.
5 I have thought on the days of old, the years of ages [past].
6 I remember my song in the night; I speak with my own heart, and my spirit carefully searches.
7 Will the Lord cast off forever? And will He be favorable no more?
8 Is His mercy gone forever? Has [His] word failed for all generations?
9 Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has He in anger shut up His tender mercies? Selah.
10 And I said, This [is] my weakness, the years of the right hand of the Most High.
11 I will remember the works of the LORD; surely I will remember Your wonders of old.
12 I will also think on all Your work, and talk of Your doings.
13 Your way, O God, [is] in holiness; who [is] so great a God as our God?
14 You [are] the God who does wonders; You have declared Your strength among the people.
15 You have with [Your] arm redeemed Your people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
16 The waters saw You, O God, the waters saw You; they were afraid; the depths also were troubled.
17 The clouds poured out water; the skies sent out a sound; Your arrows also flew here and there.
18 The voice of Your thunder [was] in the sky; the lightnings lit up the world; the earth trembled and shook.
19 Your way [is] in the sea, and Your path in the great waters, and Your footsteps are not known.
20 You led Your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
