For the Chief Musician. A song, a Psalm.

1Make a joyful noise unto God, all the earth:

2Sing forth the glory of his name:

Make his praise glorious.

3Say unto God, How terrible are thy works!

Through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.

4All the earth shall worship thee,

And shall sing unto thee;

They shall sing to thy name.


5Come, and see the works of God;

He is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.

6He turned the sea into dry land;

They went through the river on foot:

There did we rejoice in him.

7He ruleth by his might for ever;

His eyes observe the nations:

Let not the rebellious exalt themselves.


8Oh bless our God, ye peoples,

And make the voice of his praise to be heard;

9Who holdeth our soul in life,

And suffereth not our feet to be moved.

10For thou, O God, hast proved us:

Thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.

11Thou broughtest us into the net;

Thou layedst a sore burden upon our loins.

12Thou didst cause men to ride over our heads;

We went through fire and through water;

But thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.

13I will come into thy house with burnt-offerings;

I will pay thee my vows,

14Which my lips uttered,

And my mouth spake, when I was in distress.

15I will offer unto thee burnt-offerings of fatlings,

With the incense of rams;

I will offer bullocks with goats.


16Come, and hear, all ye that fear God,

And I will declare what he hath done for my soul.

17I cried unto him with my mouth,

And he was extolled with my tongue.

18If I regard iniquity in my heart,

The Lord will not hear:

19But verily God hath heard;

He hath attended to the voice of my prayer.

20Blessed be God,

Who hath not turned away my prayer,

Nor his lovingkindness from me.
