Praise to God for His Awesome WorksTo the Chief Musician. A Song. A Psalm.
1Make ⚓a joyful shout to God, all the earth!
2Sing out the honor of His name;
Make His praise glorious.
3Say to God,
“How ⚓awesome are Your works!
⚓Through the greatness of Your power
Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.
4⚓All the earth shall worship You
And sing praises to You;
They shall sing praises to Your name.”
5Come and see the works of God;
He is awesome in His doing toward the sons of men.
6⚓He turned the sea into dry land;
⚓They went through the river on foot.
There we will rejoice in Him.
7He rules by His power forever;
His eyes observe the nations;
Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves.
8Oh, bless our God, you peoples!
And make the voice of His praise to be heard,
9Who keeps our soul among the living,
And does not allow our feet to be moved.
10For ⚓You, O God, have tested us;
⚓You have refined us as silver is refined.
11⚓You brought us into the net;
You laid affliction on our backs.
12⚓You have caused men to ride over our heads;
⚓We went through fire and through water;
But You brought us out to rich fulfillment.
13⚓I will go into Your house with burnt offerings;
⚓I will pay You my vows,
14Which my lips have uttered
And my mouth has spoken when I was in trouble.
15I will offer You burnt sacrifices of fat animals,
With the sweet aroma of rams;
I will offer bulls with goats.
16Come and hear, all you who fear God,
And I will declare what He has done for my soul.
17I cried to Him with my mouth,
And He was extolled with my tongue.
18⚓If I regard iniquity in my heart,
The Lord will not hear.
19But certainly God ⚓has heard me;
He has attended to the voice of my prayer.
20Blessed be God,
Who has not turned away my prayer,
Nor His mercy from me!
