In the Day of Trouble I Sought the LORD

1I cried vnto God with my voyce, yee euen vnto God cried I with my voyce, & he herde me.

2In the tyme of my trouble I sought the LORDE, I helde vp my hondes vnto him in the night season, for my soule refused all other comforte.

3When I was in heuynesse, I thought vpo God: whe my hert was vexed, then dyd I speake.

4Sela. Thou heldest myne eyes wakynge, I was so feble, that I coude not speake,

5Then remembred I the tymes of olde, & the yeares that were past.

6I called to remembraunce my songe in the night, I commoned with myne owne herte, and sought out my sprete.

7Wil the LORDE cast out for euer? Wil he be nomore intreated?

8Is his mercy cleane gone? Is his promyse come vtterly to an ende for euermore?

9Hath the LORDE forgotten to be gracious? Or, hath he shut vp his louynge kyndnesse in displeasure?

10Sela. At the last I came to this poynte, that I thought: O why art thou so foolish? the right honde of the most hyest can chaunge all.

11Therfore wil I remembre the workes of the LORDE, and call to mynde thy wonders of olde tyme.

12I wil speake of all thy workes, and my talkynge shalbe of thy doinges.

13Thy waye (o God) is holy, who is so greate & mightie as God?

14Thou art the God, that doth wonders, thou hast declared thy power amonge the people.

15Thou with thine arme hast delyuered thy people, euen the sonnes of Iacob and Ioseph.

16Sela. The waters sawe ye (o God) ye waters sawe ye, & were afrayed: ye depthes were moued.

17The thicke cloudes poured out water, ye cloudes thodered, and thy arowes wente abrode.

18Thy thonder was herde rounde aboute, the lighteninges shone vpon the grounde, the earth was moued and shoke withall.

19Thy waye was in the see, and thy pathes in the greate waters, yet coude no man knowe thy fotesteppes.

20Thou leddest thy people like a flocke of shepe, by the honde of Moses and Aaron.
