Praise for God’s Mighty Deeds and for His Answer to Prayer.

For the choir director. A Song. A Psalm.

1 Shout joyfully to God, all the earth;
2 Sing the glory of His name;  Make His praise glorious.
3 Say to God, “How awesome are Your works!  Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will give feigned obedience to You.
4 “All the earth will worship You,  And will sing praises to You;  They will sing praises to Your name.”
Selah.

5 Come and see the works of God,  Who is awesome in His deeds toward the sons of men.
6 He turned the sea into dry land;  They passed through the river on foot;  There let us rejoice in Him!
7 He rules by His might forever;  His eyes keep watch on the nations;  Let not the rebellious exalt themselves.
Selah.

8 Bless our God, O peoples,  And sound His praise abroad,
9 Who keeps us in life  And does not allow our feet to slip.
10 For You have tried us, O God;  You have refined us as silver is refined.
11 You brought us into the net;  You laid an oppressive burden upon our loins.
12 You made men ride over our heads;  We went through fire and through water,  Yet You brought us out into a place of abundance.
13 I shall come into Your house with burnt offerings;  I shall pay You my vows,
14 Which my lips uttered  And my mouth spoke when I was in distress.
15 I shall offer to You burnt offerings of fat beasts,  With the smoke of rams;  I shall make an offering of bulls with male goats.
Selah.

16 Come and hear, all who fear God,  And I will tell of what He has done for my soul.
17 I cried to Him with my mouth,  And He was extolled with my tongue.
18 If I regard wickedness in my heart,  The Lord will not hear;
19 But certainly God has heard;  He has given heed to the voice of my prayer.
20 Blessed be God,  Who has not turned away my prayer  Nor His lovingkindness from me.
