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.
