PSALM 77:1-2, 11-20
METER: 77 77 7
SUGGESTED TUNE: HENDON
This is the tune to such hymns as "Ask Ye What Great Thing I Know."
1. I cry out to God a-loud,
I cry out so he'll hear me.
In my trou-ble I seek God,
I lift up my hands all night,
My soul won't be com-fort-ed.
2. I'll re-call God's won-drous deeds,
All your won-ders from of old.
I will think on all your work,
I'll muse on your might-y deeds.
Ho-ly is your way, O God.
3. Is there any God like you?
You're the God who won-ders does,
Who has shown the earth your might.
With your strength you saved your own,
Is-rael's child-ren you re-deemed.
4. When the wa-ters saw you, God,
Trem-bled they in fear and awe.
Wa-ter poured forth from the clouds;
Thun-der rang out in the skies,
Light-ning's ar-rows flashed all 'round.
5. Thun-der in the whirl-wind crashed;
Light-ning light-ed up the world.
Earth itself trem-bled and shook.
Through the sea you made your way,
Through great wa-ters made a path.
6. Through the sea you made your way,
Yet your foot-prints were un-seen.
By the hand of Mo-ses and
Aa-ron out of bond-age you
Led your peo-ple like a flock.
