Psalm 77 | My Song in the Night
Many churches from all denominations across the globe are entering into the season of Lent to prepare for Easter. Whether you observe LENT or not, it’s a season to prepare afresh to experience the death and resurrection of Christ. It’s a time to examine ourselves in relationship to others, turn from sin afresh, and ready ourselves for action toward the cause of the fatherless, the widow and the orphan.
LENT is a time for worship and mission, and the Imprecatory (songs of injustice), and Lament (songs of grief) Psalms remind us not only to worship the Lord and trust him in our own sin, struggle, and injustice, but to engage and bring the redemption of the gospel to those in need. Enjoy our musical rendition of Psalm 77 that focuses God’s song and hope to come, that is amidst the dark of Good Friday.
IN THE DAY OF TROUBLE I SEEK THE LORD
To the choirmaster: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.
1 I cry aloud to God,
aloud to God, and he will hear me.
2 In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord;
in the night my hand is stretched out without wearying;
my soul refuses to be comforted.
3 When I remember God, I moan;
when I meditate, my spirit faints. Selah
4 You hold my eyelids open;
I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
5 I consider the days of old,
the years long ago.
6 I said,[a] “Let me remember my song in the night;
let me meditate in my heart.”
Then my spirit made a diligent search:
7 “Will the Lord spurn forever,
and never again be favorable?
8 Has his steadfast love forever ceased?
Are his promises at an end for all time?
9 Has God forgotten to be gracious?
Has he in anger shut up his compassion?” Selah
10 Then I said, “I will appeal to this,
to the years of the right hand of the Most High.”[b]
11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
yes, I will remember your wonders of old.
12 I will ponder all your work,
and meditate on your mighty deeds.
13 Your way, O God, is holy.
What god is great like our God?
14 You are the God who works wonders;
you have made known your might among the peoples.
15 You with your arm redeemed your people,
the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah
16 When the waters saw you, O God,
when the waters saw you, they were afraid;
indeed, the deep trembled.
17 The clouds poured out water;
the skies gave forth thunder;
your arrows flashed on every side.
18 The crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind;
your lightnings lighted up the world;
the earth trembled and shook.
19 Your way was through the sea,
your path through the great waters;
yet your footprints were unseen.[c]
20 You led your people like a flock
by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
