Psalm 77
New American Standard Bible►► 

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?

Has His [c]promise come to an end [d]forever?

9Has God forgotten to be gracious,

Or has He in anger [e]withdrawn His compassion? Selah

10Then I said, “It is my [f]grief,

That the right hand of the Most High has changed.”

11I shall remember the deeds of [g]the LORD;

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.

15By Your [h]power You have redeemed Your people,

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

By the hand of Moses and Aaron.
