The third book of Psalms, song 77, New English Translation

Psalm 77

   For the music director, Jeduthun; a psalm of Asaph.
   1 I will cry out to God and call for help! I will cry out to God and he will pay attention to me.
   2 In my time of trouble I sought the LORD. I kept my hand raised in prayer throughout the night. I refused to be comforted.
   3 I said, "I will remember God while I groan; I will think about him while my strength leaves me." (Selah)
   4 You held my eyelids open; I was troubled and could not speak.
   5 I thought about the days of old, about ancient times.
   6 I said, "During the night I will remember the song I once sang; I will think very carefully." I tried to make sense of what was happening.
   7 I asked, "Will the LORD reject me forever? Will he never again show me his favor?
   8 Has his loyal love disappeared forever? Has his promise failed forever?
   9 Has God forgotten to be merciful? Has his anger stifled his compassion?"
   10 Then I said, "I am sickened by the thought that the sovereign One might become inactive.
   11 I will remember the works of the LORD. Yes, I will remember the amazing things you did long ago!
   12 I will think about all you have done; I will reflect upon your deeds!"
   13 O God, your deeds are extraordinary! What god can compare to our great God?
   14 You are the God who does amazing things; you have revealed your strength among the nations.
   15 You delivered your people by your strength - the children of Jacob and Joseph. (Selah)
   16 The waters saw you, O God, the waters saw you and trembled. Yes, the depths of the sea shook with fear.
   17 The clouds poured down rain; the skies thundered. Yes, your arrows flashed about.
   18 Your thunderous voice was heard in the wind; the lightning bolts lit up the world; the earth trembled and shook.
   19 You walked through the sea; you passed through the surging waters, but left no footprints.
   20 You led your people like a flock of sheep, by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
