Make a Joyful Noise
(Psalm 100:1–5)

1To the chiefe musition, a song (whiche is) a psalme. Declare you ioyfull vnto the Lorde all ye of the earth:

2(66:1) sing psalmes vnto the glory of his name, geue glory to his maiestie.

3(66:2) Say vnto the Lorde, oh howe wonderfull art thou in thy workes: thorow the greatnes of thy power thyne enemies shalbe founde liers vnto thee.

4(66:3) For all they of the worlde shall worship thee, and sing psalmes vnto thee: they shall sing psalmes vnto thy holy name. Selah.

5(66:4) Come hither and beholde the workes of the Lorde: howe wonderfull he is in his doing towarde the chyldren of men.

6(66:5) He turneth the sea into drye lande, so that they went thorowe the water on foote: there dyd we reioyce in him.

7(66:6) He ruleth with his power for euer, his eyes beholdeth the gentiles: such as be rebels shal not come to promotion. Selah.

8(66:7) O ye people blesse your Lorde: and make the voyce of his praise to be heard.

9(66:8) Who preserueth our soule in life: and suffereth not our feete to slip.

10(66:9) For thou O Lord hast proued vs: thou hast tryed vs, like as siluer is tryed.

11(66:10) Thou broughtest vs into the snare: and layde trouble vpon our loynes.

12(66:11) Thou sufferedst men to ride ouer our heades: we went through fire and water, and yet thou broughtest vs out into a pleasaunt place.

13(66:12) I wyll go into thy house with burnt offeringes: and I wyll pay thee my vowes

14(66:12) whiche I promised with my lippes, and spake with my mouth when I was in trouble.

15(66:13) I wyll offer vnto thee fat burnt sacrifices, with the incense of rammes: I will offer bullockes and goates. Selah.

16(66:14) O come hither, & hearken: and I wil tell all you that feare the Lorde, what he hath done for my soule.

17(66:15) I called vnto hym with my mouth: and I exalted him with my tongue.

18(66:16) If I had inclined vnto wickednes in my heart, the Lorde woulde not haue hearde me:

19(66:16) but the Lorde hath hearde me, & considered the voyce of my prayer.

20(66:17) Blessed be the Lorde which hath not reiected my prayer: nor turned his mercye from me.
