about

What should you do when life is so dark that you cannot even see God? These psalms teach us the answer: worship God anyway. These psalms are the honest cry of someone who is not at all okay and who cannot find God to help. And yet there is one thing he knows to tell himself: “Hope in God, for I again shall praise him, my salvation and my God.” Learn to sing these words! They can be your God-given anchor when you cannot find any other hope.

lyrics

To the choirmaster. A Maskil of the Sons of Korah.

Like a deer longs for streams, so my soul longs for you,
God; my soul thirsts for God, for the God who’s alive.
O when shall I come and appear before God?

My tears are my food both by day and by night,
While they say to me all the day, “Where is your God?”
These things I remember and pour out my soul:

When I went with the throng I would lead them along
To God’s house with glad shouts and a thanksgiving song,
A multitude keeping festival!

CH: Why are you cast down, O my soul?
Why are you troubled within me?
Hope in God; for I again shall praise him,
My salvation and my God.

My soul is cast down in me, so I’ll recall
You from Jordan and Hermon’s land, from Mizar’s Hill.
Deep calls to deep at your waterfalls’ roar.

All your breaking waves crashing up over me pass.
The LORD daily commands his love; nightly his song
Is with me, as a prayer to the God of my life.

I ask God, my rock: “Why forget me? Oh why do
I grieve in oppression from enemies?”
They break my bones, all day taunt me, “Where’s your God?”

(chorus)

O vindicate me, God! Contend for my cause
Against faithless people, and liberate me
From anyone who is unjust or tells lies!

For you are my God and my refuge. O why
Reject me? Why am I oppressed by my foes
I am grieving, Oh send out your light and your truth!

Let them lead me and bring me to your holy hill,
To your home, to your altar, to God my great joy!
And on a lyre I’ll praise you, God, my God!

(chorus x2)
