Psalm 66

For the director of music. A song. A psalm.
 1 Shout with joy to God, all the earth!  2 Sing the glory of his name;
       make his praise glorious!
 3 Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds!
       So great is your power
       that your enemies cringe before you.
 4 All the earth bows down to you;
       they sing praise to you,
       they sing praise to your name."
 5 Come and see what God has done,
       how awesome his works in man's behalf!
 6 He turned the sea into dry land,
       they passed through the waters on foot—
       come, let us rejoice in him.
 7 He rules forever by his power,
       his eyes watch the nations—
       let not the rebellious rise up against him.
 8 Praise our God, O peoples,
       let the sound of his praise be heard;
 9 he has preserved our lives
       and kept our feet from slipping.
 10 For you, O God, tested us;
       you refined us like silver.
 11 You brought us into prison
       and laid burdens on our backs.
 12 You let men ride over our heads;
       we went through fire and water,
       but you brought us to a place of abundance.
 13 I will come to your temple with burnt offerings
       and fulfill my vows 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.
 16 Come and listen, all you who fear God;
       let me tell 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;
 19 but God has surely listened
       and heard my voice in prayer.
 20 Praise be to God,
       who has not rejected my prayer
       or withheld his love from me!
