I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all the wonderful things you have done.
I will sing with joy because of you. I will sing praise to you, Almighty God.
My enemies turn back when you appear; they fall down and die.
You are fair and honest in your judgments, and you have judged in my favor.
You have condemned the heathen and destroyed the wicked; they will be remembered no more.
Our enemies are finished forever; you have destroyed their cities, and they are completely forgotten.
But the Lord is king forever; he has set up his throne for judgment.
He rules the world with righteousness; he judges the nations with justice.
The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a place of safety in times of trouble.
Those who know you, Lord, will trust you; you do not abandon anyone who comes to you.
Sing praise to the Lord, who rules in Zion! Tell every nation what he has done!
