Psalm 66

1 Cry out with joy to God, all the earth;

 2 O sing to the glory of his name.

 O render him glorious praise.

 3 Say to God, “How awesome your deeds!

Because of the greatness of your strength,

 your enemies fawn upon you.

 4 Before you all the earth shall bow down,

 shall sing to you, sing to your name!”

5 Come and see the works of God:

 awesome his deeds among the children of men.

 6 He turned the sea into dry land;

 they passed through the river on foot.

Let our joy, then, be in him;

 7 he rules forever by his might.

 His eyes keep watch on the nations:

 let rebels not exalt themselves.

8 O peoples, bless our God;

 let the voice of his praise resound,

 9 of the God who gave life to our souls

 and kept our feet from stumbling.

10 For you, O God, have tested us,

 you have tried us as silver is tried;

 11 you led us, God, into the snare;

 you laid a heavy burden on our backs.

12 You let men ride over our heads;

 we went through fire and through water,

 but then you brought us to a place of plenty.

13 Burnt offering I bring to your house;

 to you I will pay my vows,

 14 the vows which my lips have uttered,

 which my mouth declared in my distress.

15 I will offer you burnt offerings of fatlings

 with the smoke of sacrificial rams.

 I will offer bullocks and goats.

16 Come and hear, all who fear God;

 I will tell what he did for my soul.

 17 To him I cried aloud,

 with exaltation ready on my tongue.

18 Had I considered evil in my heart,

 the Lord would not have listened.

 19 But truly God has listened;

 he has heeded the voice of my prayer.

 20 Blest be God, who did not reject my prayer,

 nor withhold from me his merciful love.
