1 My voice came to God, when I cried: my

voice came to God; and he heard me.

2 In the day of my trouble I sought the

Lord: my sore ran and ceased not in the

night: my soul refused comfort.

3 I did think upon God, and was troubled: I

prayed, and my spirit was full of anguish.


4 Thou keepest mine eyes waking: I was astonied,

18 The voice of thy thunder was round about; the

lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled

and shook.

19 Thy way is in the sea, and thy paths in the great

20 Thou didst lead thy people like sheep by the

hand of Moses and Aaron.
