In The Day Of Trouble, I Will Seek Yahweh


Voila_Capture155 I cry aloud to God,

aloud to God, and he will hear me.

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.

When I remember God, I moan;

when I meditate, my spirit faints. Selah


You hold my eyelids open;

I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

I consider the days of old,

the years long ago.

I said, “Let me remember my song in the night;

let me meditate in my heart.”


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
