psalm 77 (amplified version)

1I WILL cry to God with my voice, even to God with my voice, and He will give ear and hearken to me.

2In the day of my trouble I seek (inquire of and desperately require) the Lord; in the night my hand is stretched out [in prayer] without slacking up; I refuse to be comforted.

3I [earnestly] remember God; I am disquieted and I groan; I muse in prayer, and my spirit faints [overwhelmed]. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

4You hold my eyes from closing; I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

5I consider the days of old, the years of bygone times [of prosperity].

6I call to remembrance my song in the night; with my heart I meditate and my spirit searches diligently:

7Will the Lord cast off forever? And will He be favorable no more?

8Have His mercy and loving-kindness ceased forever? Have His promises ended for all time?

9Has God [deliberately] abandoned or forgotten His graciousness? Has He in anger shut up His compassion? Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
