|To the choirmaster. A Song. A Psalm.|
|1||Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth;||Corporate Act of Thanksgiving.|
|2||sing the glory of his name; |
give to him glorious praise!
|3||Say to God, "How terrible are your deeds! |
So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you.
|4||All the earth worships you; |
they sing praises to you,
sing praises to your name." Selah
|5||Come and see what God has done: |
he is terrible in his deeds among men.
|6||He turned the sea into dry land; |
men passed through the river on foot.
There did we rejoice in him,
|7||who rules by his might for ever, |
whose eyes keep watch on the nations -
let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah
|8||Bless our God, O peoples, |
let the sound of his praise be heard,
|9||who has kept us among the living, |
and has not let our feet slip.
|10||For you have tested us, O God; |
you have tried us as silver is tried.
|11||You brought us into the net; |
you laid affliction on our loins;
|12||you let men ride over our heads; |
we went through fire and through water;
yet you have brought us forth to a spacious place.
|13||I will come into your house with burnt offerings; |
I will pay you my vows,
|14||that which my lips uttered |
and my mouth promised when I was in trouble.
|15||I will offer to you burnt offerings of fatlings, |
with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams;
I will make an offering of bulls and goats. Selah
|16||Come and hear, all you who fear God, |
and I will tell what he has done for me.
|17||I cried aloud to him, |
and he was extolled with my tongue.
|18||If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, |
Yahweh would not have listened.
|19||But truly God has listened; |
he has given heed to the voice of my prayer.
|20||Blessed be God,|
because he has not rejected my prayer
or removed his steadfast love from me!
