1: (For the Chief Musician. A song. A Psalm.) Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth! 2: Sing to the glory of his name! Offer glory and praise! 3: Tell God, "How awesome are your deeds! Through the greatness of your power, Your enemies will submit themselves to you. 4: All the earth will worship you, And will sing to you; They will sing to your name." Selah. 5: Come, and see God's deeds -- Awesome work on behalf of the children of men. 6: He turned the sea into dry land. They went through the river on foot. There, we rejoiced in him. 7: He rules by his might forever. His eyes watch the nations. Don't let the rebellious rise up against him. Selah. 8: Praise our God, you peoples! Make the sound of his praise heard, 9: Who preserves our life among the living, And doesn't allow our feet to be moved. 10: For you, God, have tested us. You have refined us, as silver is refined. 11: You brought us into prison. You laid a burden on our backs. 12: You allowed men to ride over our heads. We went through fire and through water, But you brought us to the place of abundance. 13: I will come into your temple with burnt offerings. I will pay my vows to you, 14: which my lips promised, And my mouth spoke, when I was in distress. 15: I will offer to you burnt offerings of fat animals, With the offering of rams, I will offer bulls with goats. Selah. 16: Come, and hear, all you who fear God. I will declare what he has done for my soul. 17: I cried to him with my mouth. He was extolled with my tongue. 18: If I cherished sin in my heart, The Lord wouldn't have listened. 19: But most assuredly, God has listened. He has heard the voice of my prayer. 20: Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, Nor his lovingkindness from me.
