I cry out to God; I call to God, and he will hear me.
I look for the Lord on the day of trouble. All night long I reach out my hands, but I cannot be comforted.
When I remember God, I become upset; when I think, I become afraid.Selah
You keep my eyes from closing. I am too upset to say anything.
I keep thinking about the old days, the years of long ago.
At night I remember my songs. I think and I ask myself:
"Will the Lord reject us forever? Will he never be kind to us again?
Is his love gone forever? Has he stopped speaking for all time?
Has God forgotten mercy? Is he too angry to pity us?"Selah
Then I say "This is what makes me sad: For years the power of God Most High was with us."
I remember what the Lord did; I remember the miracles you did long ago.
I think about all the things you did and consider your deeds.
God, your ways are holy. No god is as great as our God.
You are the God who does miracles; you have shown people your power.
By your power you have saved your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph.Selah
God, the waters saw you; they saw you and became afraid; the deep waters shook with fear.
The clouds poured down their rain. The sky thundered. Your lightning flashed back and forth like arrows.
Your thunder sounded in the whirlwind. Lightning lit up the world. The earth trembled and shook.
You made a way through the sea and paths through the deep waters, but your footprints were not seen.
You led your people like a flock by using Moses and Aaron. A maskil of Asaph.
