To the Chief Musician. A Song or Psalm.
Praise God For His Great Works
1Make a joyful noise unto God, all you lands:
2Sing forth the honor of his name: make his praise glorious.
3Say unto God, How awesome are you in your works! through the greatness of your power shall your enemies submit themselves unto you.
4All the earth shall worship you, and shall sing unto you; they shall sing to your name. Selah.
5Come and see the works of God: he is awesome in his doing toward the children of men.
6He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.
7He rules by his power forever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
8O bless our God, you people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard:
9Who holds our soul in life, and allows not our feet to be moved.
10For you, O God, have proved us: you have tried us, as silver is tried.
11You brought us into the net; you laid affliction upon our backs.
12You have caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but you brought us out into a wealthy place.
13I will go into your house with burnt offerings: I will pay you my vows,
14Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth has spoken, when I was in trouble.
15I will offer unto you burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.
16Come and hear, all you that fear God, and I will declare what he has done for my soul.
17I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.
18If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
19But verily God has heard me; he has attended to the voice of my prayer.
20Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
