1: (For the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. A Psalm. A song.) May God be merciful to us, bless us, And cause his face to shine on us. Selah. 2: That your way may be known on earth, And your salvation among all nations, 3: Let the peoples praise you, God. Let all the peoples praise you. 4: Oh let the nations be glad and sing for joy, For you will judge the peoples with equity, And govern the nations on earth. Selah. 5: Let the peoples praise you, God. Let all the peoples praise you. 6: The earth has yielded its increase. God, even our own God, will bless us. 7: God will bless us. All the ends of the earth shall fear him.
