In the Day of Trouble I Sought the LORD

1To the chiefe musition vpon Ieduthun, a psalme of Asaph. My voyce was vnto the Lorde, and I cryed: my voyce was vnto the Lord, and he hearkened vnto me.

2In the tyme of my trouble I sought the Lorde: my hande all the nyght catched & ceassed not, my soule refused comfort.

3I called to remembraunce God, and I was disquieted: I conferred with my selfe, and my spirite was wrapped in pensiuenesse. Selah.

4Thou dydst kepe the watche of mine eies: I was amased & coulde not speake.

5I dyd thynke vpon the dayes past: and on the yeres of the olde worlde.

6I called to remembraunce my psalme, song on the musicall instrument in the nyght tyme: I communed with myne owne heart, & searched out my spirites.

7What, wyll the Lorde forsake me for euer? wyll he be no more intreated to be fauourable?

8Is his mercie cleane gone for euer? and is his promise made from one generation to another, come vtterly to an ende.

9Hath God forgotten to be gratious? and will he shut vp his louing kindnesse in displeasure? Selah.

10And I sayde, this is my death: but the ryght hande of the most hyghest may graunt me yeres.

11I dyd call to remebraunce the workes of God almightie: for thy wonders done a great whyle a goe came into my mynde.

12I also gaue my selfe to muse of all thy workes: and I talked of all thy actes.

13Thy way O Lorde is in holynesse: who is so great a God as the Lorde?

14Thou art the God that doth wonders: thou hast made thy power knowen among the people.

15Thou hast redeemed thy people with a mightie arme: the sonnes of Iacob and Ioseph. Selah.

16The waters sawe thee O God, the waters sawe thee, they feared: yea the depthes of them moued out of their place.

17Thicke cloudes powred downe rayne, thinne cloudes gaue a noyse: and thine arrowes went abrode into al corners.

18The sounde of thy thunder was rounde about the sky: the lightnynges shone through the worlde, the earth quaked and trembled.

19Thy way is in the sea, and thy pathes in the great waters: and thy footesteppes are not knowen.

20Thou dydst leade thy people lyke sheepe: by the hande of Moyses and Aaron.
