1 To the Chief Musician. A Song or Psalm. Make a joyful noise unto God, all you lands:
2 Sing forth the honor of his name: make his praise glorious.
3 Say unto God, How awesome are you in your works! through the greatness of your power shall your enemies submit themselves unto you.
4 All the earth shall worship you, and shall sing unto you; they shall sing to your name. Selah.
5 Come and see the works of God: he is awesome in his doing toward the children of men.
6 He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.
7 He rules by his power forever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
8 O bless our God, you people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard:
9 Who holds our soul in life, and allows not our feet to be moved.
10 For you, O God, have proved us: you have tried us, as silver is tried.
11 You brought us into the net; you laid affliction upon our backs.
12 You have caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but you brought us out into a wealthy place.
13 I will go into your house with burnt offerings: I will pay you my vows,
14 Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth has spoken, when I was in trouble.
15 I will offer unto you burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.
16 Come and hear, all you that fear God, and I will declare what he has done for my soul.
17 I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.
18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
19 But verily God has heard me; he has attended to the voice of my prayer.
20 Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
