O shout with joy to God, all the earth :
sing to the honour of his name,
and give him glory as his praise.
Say to God How fearful are your works :
because of your great might
your enemies shall cower before you.
All the earth shall worship you :
and sing to you, and sing praises to your name.
Come then and see what God has done :
how terrible are his dealings with the children of men.
He turned the sea into dry land,
they crossed the river on foot :
then were we joyful because of him.
By his power he rules for ever,
his eyes keep watch on the nations :
and rebels shall never rise against him.
O bless our God, you peoples :
and cause his praises to resound,
Who has held our souls in life :
who has not suffered our feet to slip.
For you have proved us, O God :
you have tried us as silver is tried.
You brought us into the net :
you laid sharp torment on our loins.
You let men ride over our heads,
we went through fire and water :
but you brought us out into a place of liberty.
I will come into your house with burnt-offerings :
and I will pay you my vows,
The vows that opened my lips :
that my mouth uttered when I was in trouble.
I will offer you burnt-offerings of fattened beasts,
with the sweet smoke of rams :
I will sacrifice a bull and the flesh of goats.
Come then and hear, all you that fear God :
and I will tell what he has done for me.
I called to him with my mouth :
and his praise was on my tongue.
If I had cherished wickedness in my heart :
the Lord would not have heard me.
But God has heard me :
he has heeded the voice of my prayer.
Praise be to God :
who has not turned back my prayer,
or his steadfast love from me.
