1 Shout for joy to God, all the earth!z
2 Sing the glory of his name;a
make his praise glorious.b
3 Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!c
So great is your power
that your enemies cringed before you.
4 All the earth bows downe to you;
they sing praisef to you,
they sing the praises of your name.”a
5 Come and see what God has done,
his awesome deedsg for mankind!
6 He turned the sea into dry land,h
they passed throughi the waters on foot—
come, let us rejoicej in him.
7 He rules foreverk by his power,
his eyes watchl the nations—
let not the rebelliousm rise up against him.
8 Praisen our God, all peoples,
let the sound of his praise be heard;
9 he has preserved our liveso
and kept our feet from slipping.p
10 For you, God, testedq us;
you refined us like silver.r
11 You brought us into prisons
and laid burdenst on our backs.
12 You let people ride over our heads;u
we went through fire and water,
but you brought us to a place of abundance.v
13 I will come to your temple with burnt offeringsw
and fulfill my vowsx to you—
14 vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke
when I was in trouble.
15 I will sacrifice fat animals to you
and an offering of rams;
I will offer bulls and goats.y
16 Come and hear,z all you who fear God;
let me tella you what he has done for me.
17 I cried out to him with my mouth;
his praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished sin in my heart,
the Lord would not have listened;b
19 but God has surely listened
and has heardc my prayer.
who has not rejectedd my prayer
or withheld his love from me!
