Psalm 77

(from Day 15 Morning Prayer)

Voce mea ad Dominum

  1. I WILL cry unto God with my voice: even unto God will I cry with my voice, and he shall hearken unto me.
  2. In the time of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran and ceased not in the night-season ; my soul refused comfort.
  3. When I am in heaviness, I will think upon God: when my heart is vexed, I will complain.
  4. Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so feeble, that I cannot speak.
  5. I have considered the days of old: and the years that are past.
  6. I call to remembrance my song: and in the night I commune with mine own heart, and search out my spirits.
  7. Will the Lord absent himself for ever: and will he be no more intreated?
  8. Is his mercy clean gone for ever: and is his promise come utterly to an end for evermore?
  9. Hath God forgotten to be gracious: and will he shut up his loving-kindness in displeasure?
  10. And I said, It is mine own infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most Highest.
  11. I will remember the works of the Lord: and call to mind thy wonders of old time.
  12. I will think also of all thy works: and my talking shall be of thy doings.
  13. Thy way, O God, is holy: who is so great a God as our God?
  14. Thou art the God that doeth wonders: and hast declared thy power among the people.
  15. Thou hast mightily delivered thy people: even the sons of Jacob and Joseph.
  16. The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee, and were afraid: the depths also were troubled.
  17. The clouds poured out water, the air thundered: and thine arrows went abroad.
  18. The voice of thy thunder was heard round about: the lightnings shone upon the ground: the earth was moved, and shook withal.
  19. Thy way is in the sea, and thy paths in the great waters: and thy footsteps are not known.
  20. Thou leddest thy people like sheep: by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
