Voce mea ad Dominum.

I will cry unto God | with my voice;

* even unto God will I cry with my voice, and he shall | hearken unto me.

2 In the time of my trouble I | sought the Lord:

* I stretched forth my hands unto him, and ceased not in the night season; my | soul refused comfort.

3 When I am in heaviness, I will | think up•on God;

* when my heart is | vexed, I will complain.

4 Thou holdest mine | eyes waking:

* I am so feeble | that I cannot speak.

5 I have considered the | days of old,

* and the | years that are past.

6 I call to re- | -membrance• my song,

* and in the night I commune with mine own heart, and | search out my spirit.

7 Will the Lord absent him- | -self for ever?

* and will he | be no more intreated?

8 Is his mercy clean | gone for ever?

* and is his promise come utterly to an | end for evermore?

9 Hath God forgotten | to be gracious?

* and will he shut up his loving- | kindness in displeasure?

10 And I said, It is mine | own infirmity;

* but I will remember the years of the right hand | of the Most Highest.

11 I will remember the works | of the LORD,

* and call to mind thy | wonders• of old time.

12 I will think also of | all thy works,

* and my talking shall | be of thy doings.

13 Thy way, O | God, is holy:

* who is so great a | God as our God?

14 Thou art the God that | doest wonders,

* and hast declared thy | power• among the peoples.

15 Thou hast mightily de- | -livered• thy people,

* even the | sons of •Jacob• and Joseph.

16 The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee, and | were afraid;

* the depths | also were troubled.

17 The clouds poured out water, the | air thundered,

* and thine | arrows went abroad.

18 The voice of thy thunder was heard | round about:

* the lightnings shone upon the ground; the earth was | moved, and shook withal.

19 Thy way is in the sea, and thy paths in the | great waters,

* and thy | footsteps are not known.

20 Thou leddest thy | people• like sheep,

* by the | hand of •Moses• and Aaron.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
