1 To the choirmaster. A Song. A Psalm.
2 Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth;
3 sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise!
4 Say to God, "How terrible are thy deeds! So great is thy power that thy enemies cringe before thee.
5 All the earth worships thee; they sing praises to thee, sing praises to thy name." [Selah]
6 Come and see what God has done: he is terrible in his deeds among men.
7 He turned the sea into dry land; men passed through the river on foot. There did we rejoice in him,
8 who rules by his might for ever, whose eyes keep watch on the nations-- let not the rebellious exalt themselves. [Selah]
9 Bless our God, O peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard,
10 who has kept us among the living, and has not let our feet slip.
11 For thou, O God, hast tested us; thou hast tried us as silver is tried.
12 Thou didst bring us into the net; thou didst lay affliction on our loins;
13 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.
14 I will come into thy house with burnt offerings; I will pay thee my vows,
15 that which my lips uttered and my mouth promised when I was in trouble.
16 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]
17 Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for me.
18 I cried aloud to him, and he was extolled with my tongue.
19 If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.
20 But truly God has listened; he has given heed to the voice of my prayer. [ (Psalms 66:21) Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me! ]
