|[To the choirmaster. A Song. A Psalm.]|
|Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth;||Corporate Act of Thanksgiving. Psalm 66(v65)|
|sing the glory of his name; |
give to him glorious praise!
|Say to God, "How terrible are thy deeds! |
So great is thy power that thy enemies cringe before thee.
|All the earth worships thee; |
they sing praises to thee,
sing praises to thy name." [Selah]
|Come and see what God has done: |
he is terrible in his deeds among men.
|He turned the sea into dry land; |
men passed through the river on foot.
There did we rejoice in him,
|who rules by his might for ever, |
whose eyes keep watch on the nations -
let not the rebellious exalt themselves. [Selah]
|Bless our God, O peoples, |
let the sound of his praise be heard,
|who has kept us among the living, |
and has not let our feet slip.
|For thou, O God, hast tested us; |
thou hast tried us as silver is tried.
|Thou didst bring us into the net; |
thou didst lay affliction on our loins;
|thou didst let men ride over our heads; |
we went through fire and through water;
yet thou hast brought us forth to a spacious place.
|I will come into thy house with burnt offerings; |
I will pay thee my vows,
|that which my lips uttered |
and my mouth promised when I was in trouble.
|I will offer to thee burnt offerings of fatlings, |
with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams;
I will make an offering of bulls and goats. [Selah]
|Come and hear, all you who fear God, |
and I will tell what he has done for me.
|I cried aloud to him, |
and he was extolled with my tongue.
|If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, |
the Lord would not have listened.
|But truly God has listened; |
he has given heed to the voice of my prayer.
|Blessed be God,|
because he has not rejected my prayer
or removed his steadfast love from me!
