1To the choirmaster. A Song. A Psalm. Shout for joy to God, all the earth; (Ps 81:1; Ps 95:1; Ps 98:4; Ps 100:1)2sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise! (Jos 7:19; Isa 42:12)3Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you. (Ps 18:44; Ps 65:5)4All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name.” (Ps 22:27)5Come and see what God has done: he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man. (Ps 46:8; Ps 66:3; Ps 66:16)6He turned the sea into dry land; they passed through the river on foot. There did we rejoice in him, (Ex 14:21; Jos 3:14; Ps 74:15)7who rules by his might forever, whose eyes keep watch on the nations— let not the rebellious exalt themselves. (Ps 11:4)8Bless our God, O peoples; let the sound of his praise be heard,9who has kept our soul among the living and has not let our feet slip. (Ps 121:3)10For you, O God, have tested us; you have tried us as silver is tried. (Job 23:10)11You brought us into the net; you laid a crushing burden on our backs; (La 1:13; Eze 12:13)12you let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water; yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance. (Isa 43:2; Isa 51:23)13I will come into your house with burnt offerings; I will perform my vows to you, (Ps 50:14)14that which my lips uttered and my mouth promised when I was in trouble. (Ps 18:6)15I will offer to you burnt offerings of fattened animals, with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams; I will make an offering of bulls and goats.16Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for my soul. (Ps 34:11; Ps 66:5)17I cried to him with my mouth, and high praise was on my tongue.18If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. (Job 27:9; Job 36:21; Pr 28:9; Isa 59:2; Joh 9:31; Jas 4:3)19But truly God has listened; he has attended to the voice of my prayer. (Ps 116:1)20Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me!
