1
MAKE a joyful noise unto God, all lands.
2
Sing the honor of his name;
sing the honor of his majesty.
3
Say unto God, How wonderful are thy works!
Through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.
4
All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thy name;
they shall glorify thy name forever.
5
They shall say, Come and see the works of God;
for his wonders are great toward the children of men.
6
He turns the sea into dry land: they crossed through the river on foot;
there did we rejoice in him.
7
He rules by his power for ever;
his eyes behold the nations;
let not the rebellious exalt themselves.
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 suffers not our feet to be moved.
10
For thou, O God, hast proved us;
thou hast tried us as silver is tried.
11
Thou didst bring us into the net;
thou didst lay affliction upon our loins.
12
Thou hast caused us to be in servitude;
we went through fire and through water;
finally thou didst bring us out into a comfortable place.
13
¶ I will go into thy house with gifts;
I will pay thee my vows.
14
Which my lips have uttered and my mouth has spoken when I was in trouble.
15
I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the savour of rams;
I will offer bullocks with goats.
16
Come and hear, all you servants of God, and I will declare what he has done for my soul.
17
I cried to him with my mouth, and he has answered me;
I extolled him with my tongue.
18
If thou behold iniquity in my heart, O LORD, deliver me not.
19
But verily God has heard me;
he has attended to the voice of my prayer.
20
Blessed be God, who has not rejected my prayer nor turned his mercy from me.
