Original Music for the 150 Psalms


DO YOU SLEEP, O MY LORD GOD? (PSALM 44)

1. Do you sleep, O my Lord God?
Why do you hide from me?
I am down, O my Lord God:
cast down in misery.

O my God, rise and help me
with Your unfailing love.
So awake, O my Lord God.
Awake and hear my plea.

2. We have heard from our fathers
Your deeds of long ago.
How You stood with Your people,
and helped them beat the foe.

It was not swords that vanquished,
but rather You, O Lord.
So be with us, Our Savior,
Where ever we may go.
