Psalm 44 (5:22)

by Jason Silver (played 29 times)


We have heard with our ears, O God,
Our ancestors have told us,
The deeds you performed in their days of old:

With your own hand you drove out the nations,
But you planted us;
Afflicted the people living there,
But you us set free;
For not by their own sword did they win the land,
Nor did their own arm give them victory;

But your right hand, and your arm,
And the light of your countenance,
For you delighted in them.

You're my King and you are my God;
Commanded victories for Jacob.
Through you and your name we push down our foes;

For not in my bow, nor in my sword I trust,
Cannot save me.
But you have saved us from our foes,
Confused those who hate us.
In God we have boasted constantly,
And we will thank your name forever.

Instrumental / Selah (Rest and think about that)

Yet you have rejected and disgraced us,
And have not gone out with our armies.
You have made us turn back from the foe and,
Our enemies take spoil for themselves.

You've made us like sheep for the slaughter,
And have scattered us among the nations.
You have sold your people for a trifle,
Demanding no high price for them.

You've made us the taunt of our neighbours,
Derision and scorn of those around us.
You've made us a byword in the nations,
A laughing-stock among the peoples.

All day long my disgrace is before me,
Shame has overwhelmed my very face
At the words of taunters and revilers,
At the sight of the enemy.

Even through this, we have not forgotten you,
Or been false to your own covenant.
Our heart has not turned back, nor our steps left,
Yet you've broken us and covered us with dark.

If we had forgotten the name of God,
Or spread out our hands to a strange god,
Would not God discover this? For he knows”“
For he knows all the secrets of the heart.

Because of you we are being killed all day,
Slaughtered like the sheep.
Rouse yourself! Why do you sleep, O Lord?
Do not cast us off!
Why do you hide your face? Why do you forget
Our affliction and oppression?

For we sink down to the dust;
Our bodies cling to the ground.

Rise up, come to our help, Redeem
For the sake of your steadfast love.
