1 «To the chief Musician, A Song [or] Psalm.» Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:
2 Sing forth the glory of his name: make his praise glorious.
3 Say unto God, How terrible [art thou in] thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.
4 All the worlde shall worship thee, and sing vnto thee, euen sing of thy Name. Selah.
5 Come and see the works of God: [he is] terrible [in his] doing toward the children of men.
6 He hath turned the Sea into drie land: they passe through the riuer on foote: there did we reioyce in him.
7 He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
8 Prayse our God, ye people, and make the voyce of his prayse to be heard.
9 Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.
10 For thou, O God, hast proued vs, thou hast tryed vs as siluer is tryed.
11 Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.
12 Thou hast caused men to ryde ouer our heads: we went into fire and into water, but thou broughtest vs out into a welthie place.
13 I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows,
14 Which my lippes haue promised, and my mouth hath spoken in mine affliction.
15 I will offer vnto thee the burnt offerings of fat rammes with incense: I will prepare bullocks and goates. Selah.
16 Come [and] hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.
17 I called vnto him with my mouth, and he was exalted with my tongue.
18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear [me]:
19 But God hath heard me, & considered the voyce of my prayer.
20 Praysed be God, which hath not put backe my prayer, nor his mercie from me.
