Ps 77 :

A community lament in which the speaker (“I”) describes the anguish of Israel at God's silence when its very existence is at stake (2–11). In response the speaker recites the story of how God brought the people into existence (12–21). The question is thus posed to God: Will you allow the people you created to be destroyed?

77, 11 :

I conclude: literally, “I said.” The psalmist, after pondering the present distress and God's promises to Israel, has decided that God has forgotten the people.

77, 12 :

I will remember: the verb sometimes means to make present the great deeds of Israel's past by reciting them. Cf Pss 78, 42; 105, 5; 106, 7 .
