1Shout for joy to God, all the earth;
sing the glory of his name; 2give to him glorious praise!
Say to God, 3"How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies 4come cringing to you.
5All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name." Selah
6Come and see what God has done: 7he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man.
He 8turned the sea into dry land; they 9passed through the river on foot. There did we rejoice in him,
who rules by his might forever, whose 10eyes keep watch on the nations-- let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah
Bless our God, O peoples; let the sound of his praise be heard,
who has kept our soul among the living and 11has not let our feet slip.
For you, O God, have 12tested us; you have tried us as silver is tried.
You brought us into 13the net; you laid a crushing burden on our backs;
you let men 14ride over our heads; we went through fire and through 15water; yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance.
I will come into your house with burnt offerings; I will 16perform my vows to you,
that which my lips uttered and my mouth promised 17when I was in trouble.
I will offer to you burnt offerings of fattened animals, with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams; I will make an offering of bulls and goats. Selah
18Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for my soul.
I cried to him with my mouth, and high praise was on my tongue.
If I had 19cherished iniquity in my heart, 20the Lord would not have listened.
But truly 21God has listened; he has attended to the voice of my prayer.
Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me!
