I will Remember the Works of the Lord

I will remember the works of the Lord

Though my heart is heavy
And my soul not comforted
As I look upon the destruction
The struggle, and the fight
Of my people, my beloved people

For they are stripped bare
They are ripped apart
By barbaric hands and treacherous hearts
The ground is thirsty, the farmlands red
The poor are shouting, to be heard

Will we shrink back and yield our land
Will we lie down in fear?
No! We are a people of great worth
Joined together by African birth

We will stand and remember
The works of the Lord
We will meditate on His wonders of old
He will redeem His people
With His outstretched arm
He will lead us through the deep

Do not be fooled by the roar of the wild
The beast is doomed, his fate is sealed
The Lord God Almighty
The Holy One of Israel
It is He Who will save us
His strength will be seen

For this nation is called
She is handpicked from of old
The enemy trembles,
Sore afraid at his core

Set-apart, she has been
Destined to reign alongside her King
She will rise out of ashes
She will come through her sorrow
She will rule by His Power
South Africa, you are His.

Psalm 77

In Distress, I Sought the Lord

1{To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of Asaph.} I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.

2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.

3I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.

4Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

5I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.

6I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.

7Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?

8Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?

9Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.

10And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.

11I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.

12I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.

13Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?

14Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.

15Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.

16The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.

17The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.

18The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.

19Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.

20Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
