Ps 44:1-8

National Lament and Prayer for Help To the leader. Of the Korahites. A Maskil. 1We have heard with our ears, O God, our ancestors have told us, what deeds you performed in their days, in the days of old:2you with your own hand drove out the nations, but them you planted; you afflicted the peoples, but them you set free;3for not by their own sword did they win the land, nor did their own arm give them victory; but your right hand, and your arm, and the light of your countenance, for you delighted in them. 4You are my King and my God; you command victories for Jacob.5Through you we push down our foes; through your name we tread down our assailants.6For not in my bow do I trust, nor can my sword save me.7But you have saved us from our foes, and have put to confusion those who hate us.8In God we have boasted continually, and we will give thanks to your name forever. Selah
