To the Chief Justice,. A Song of a Psalm
1 Shout joyfully to God all the earth,
2 Sing the glory of his name, Make glorious his praise.
3 Say unto God: |How terrible art thou in thy works! |Through the greatness of thy power shall thy enemies feign submission unto thee.
4 |All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing to thee, |They shall hymn thy name.| Selah.
5 Come ye, and see the works of God: He is terrible in his doing towards the sons of men.
6 He turned the sea into dry land; Through the river they passed on foot; There we were glad in him.
7 He ruleth by his might over the world; His eyes upon the nations are fixed: The rebels shall not exalt themselves. Selah.
8 Bless, O ye people! our God, And resound the voice of his praise.
9 Who hath brought our souls into life, And hath not suffered our feet to fall.
10 For thou hast proved us, O God! Thou hast tried us as silver is tried:
11 Thou hast brought us into the net Thou hast laid restraint upon our loins;
12 Thou hast made man to ride over our heads; We have come into fire and water; And thou hast brought us into a place of abundance.
13 I will come into thy house with burnt-offerings; I will pay thee my vows,
14 Which my lips have uttered, And my mouth hath spoken in my affliction.
15 Burnt-offerings of fat lambs I will offer to thee with incense of rams; I will bring bullocks with goats. Selah.
16 Come, hear, and I will tell all you who fear God, What he hath done for my soul.
17 To him with my mouth I cried, And I have exalted him with my tongue.
18 If I have regarded iniquity in my heart, The Lord will not hear me.
19 But truly heard me hath God; He hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
20 Blessed be God who hath not turned away my prayer, Nor his mercy from me.
