A Song of Praise

1Shout praise to God all the earth!

2Sing praise about the glory of his name.a

Make his praise glorious.

3Say to God: “How awesome are your works!

Because of your great strength

your enemies cringe before you.”

4The whole earth worships you.

They sing praise to you.

They sing praise to your name.


5Come and see the awesome works of God

on behalf of human beings:

6He turned the sea into dry land.

Israelb crossed the river on foot;

let us rejoice in him.

7He rules by his power forever,

his eyes watching over the nations.

Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves.


8Bless our God, people,

and let the sound of his praise be heard.

9He gives us life

and does not permit our feet to slip.

10For you, God, tested us,

to purify us like fine silver.

11You have led us into a trapc

and set burdens on our backs.

12You caused men to ride over us.d

You brought us through fire and water,

but you led us to abundance.

13I will come to your house with burnt offerings.

I will fulfill my vows to you

14that my lips uttered and that my mouth spoke

when I was in trouble.

15I will offer to you burnt offerings of fat,

along with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams.

I will offer bulls along with goats.


16Come and listen, all of you who fear God,

and I will tell you what he did for me.

17I called aloud to him

and praised him with my tongue.

18Were I to cherish iniquity in my heart,

the Lord would not listen to me.

19Surely God has heard,

and he paid attention to mye prayers.

20Blessed be God, who did not turn away my prayers

nor his gracious love from me.
