The Psalms 44

    National Lament and Prayer for Help

  1. "We have heard with our ears, O God,our fathers have told us,what deeds thou didst perform in their days,in the days of old:"
  2. "thou with thy own hand didst drive out the nations,but them thou didst plant;thou didst afflict the peoples,but them thou didst set free;"
  3. "for not by their own sword did they win the land,nor did their own arm give them victory;but thy right hand, and thy arm,and the light of thy countenance;for thou didst delight in them."
