How Great Are Your Works

A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath.

1It is good to give thanks to the Lord,

to sing praises to your name, O Most High;

2to declare your steadfast love in the morning,

and your faithfulness by night,

3to the music of the lute and the harp,

to the melody of the lyre.

4For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work;

at the works of your hands I sing for joy.

5How great are your works, O Lord!

Your thoughts are very deep!

6The stupid man cannot know;

the fool cannot understand this:

7that though the wicked sprout like grass

and all evildoers flourish,

they are doomed to destruction forever;

8but you, O Lord, are on high forever.

9For behold, your enemies, O Lord,

for behold, your enemies shall perish;

all evildoers shall be scattered.

10But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox;

you have poured over me fresh oil.

11My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies;

my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.

12The righteous flourish like the palm tree

and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

13They are planted in the house of the Lord;

they flourish in the courts of our God.

14They still bear fruit in old age;

they are ever full of sap and green,

15to declare that the Lord is upright;

he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
