Communal Psalms of Lament, day 1 | Salmos Comunales de Lamento, día 1

from Psalms for Praying: An Invitation to Wholeness (Nan C. Merrill)


Psalm 44

We have heard with our ears,

O Rock of ages,

all generations have proclaimed

The mighty deed You wrought

in their days,

in the days of old;

Of how You with your own hand

drove out the nations,

sowing seeds for new life;

Of how You led the peoples

into bondage,

and then You set them free;

For not by their own might did

they win the land,

nor did their own strength give

them victory,

But by your power and your might,

and the light of your countenance;

for You sought to awaken them!

O, You who know all hearts,

who are ever-present to your people,

Through You we face our enemies;

through your Name we call forth

our fears.

For not in military powers do we trust,

nor can arms save us.

For only in You can we put

our fears to rest,

and transform them into peace.

In You, O Gracious One, do we give thanks,

and forever will we offer You

our songs of praise.

de La Biblia de las Américas


Oh Dios, con nuestros oídos hemos oído, nuestros padres nos han contado la obra que hiciste en sus días, en los tiempos antiguos.


Tú con tu mano echaste fuera las naciones, y a ellos los plantaste. Afligiste a los pueblos, y a ellos los hiciste crecer.


Pues no por su espada tomaron posesión de la tierra, ni su brazo los salvó, sino tu diestra y tu brazo, y la luz de tu presencia, porque te complaciste en ellos.


Tú eres mi rey, oh Dios; manda victorias a Jacob.


Contigo rechazaremos a nuestros adversarios; en tu nombre hollaremos a los que contra nosotros se levanten.


Porque yo no confiaré en mi arco, ni me salvará mi espada;


pues tú nos has salvado de nuestros adversarios, y has avergonzado a los que nos aborrecen.


En Dios nos hemos gloriado todo el día, y por siempre alabaremos tu nombre. (Selah)
