Psalm 66. Jubilate Deo.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twelfth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. Be joyful in God, all you lands; *
    sing the glory of his Name; sing the glory of his praise.
  2. Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! *
    because of your great strength your enemies cringe before you.
  3. All the earth bows down before you, *
    sings to you, sings out your Name."
  4. Come now and see the works of God, *
    how wonderful he is in his doing toward all people.
  5. He turned the sea into dry land, so that they went through the water on foot, *
    and there we rejoiced in him.
  6. In his might he rules for ever; his eyes keep watch over the nations; *
    let no rebel rise up against him.
  7. Bless our God, you peoples; *
    make the voice of his praise to be heard;
  8. Who holds our souls in life, *
    and will not allow our feet to slip.
  9. For you, O God, have proved us; *
    you have tried us just as silver is tried.
  10. You brought us into the snare; *
    you laid heavy burdens upon our backs.
  11. You let enemies ride over our heads; we went through fire and water; *
    but you brought us out into a place of refreshment.
  12. I will enter your house with burnt-offerings and will pay you my vows, *
    which I promised with my lips and spoke with my mouth when I was in trouble.
  13. I will offer you sacrifices of fat beasts with the smoke of rams; *
    I will give you oxen and goats.
  14. Come and listen, all you who fear God, *
    and I will tell you what he has done for me.
  15. I called out to him with my mouth, *
    and his praise was on my tongue.
  16. If I had found evil in my heart, *
    the Lord would not have heard me;
  17. But in truth God has heard me; *
    he has attended to the voice of my prayer.
  18. Blessed be God, who has not rejected my prayer, *
    nor withheld his love from me.
