1Shout joyful praises to God, all the earth!2Sing about the glory of his name! Tell the world how glorious he is.3Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! Your enemies cringe before your mighty power.4Everything on earth will worship you; they will sing your praises, shouting your name in glorious songs.” Interlude5Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles he performs for people!6He made a dry path through the Red Sea, and his people went across on foot. There we rejoiced in him.7For by his great power he rules forever. He watches every movement of the nations; let no rebel rise in defiance. Interlude8Let the whole world bless our God and loudly sing his praises.9Our lives are in his hands, and he keeps our feet from stumbling.
16Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell you what he did for me.17For I cried out to him for help, praising him as I spoke.18If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.19But God did listen! He paid attention to my prayer.20Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer or withdraw his unfailing love from me.
