Lament in This Moment (Lowertown St. Paul)

Psalm 44 1 We have heard it with our ears, O God;    our ancestors have told uswhat you did in their days,    in days long ago.2 With your hand you drove out the nations    and planted our ancestors;you crushed the peoples    and made our ancestors flourish.3 It was not by their sword that they won the land,    nor did their arm bring them victory;it was your right hand, your arm,    and the light of your face, for you loved them. 4 You are my King and my God,    who decrees victories…

But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. 21 To…
