(A song and a psalm for the music leader.) Shout Praises to God 66 1Tell everyone on this earth to shout praises to God! 2Sing about his glorious name. Honor him with praises. 3Say to God, “Everything you do is fearsome, and your mighty power makes your enemies come crawling. 4You are worshiped by everyone! We all sing praises to you.” 5Come and see the fearsome things our God has done! 6 When God made the sea dry up, our people walked across, and because of him, we celebrated there. 7His mighty power rules forever, and nothing the nations do can be hidden from him. So don't turn against God. 8All of you people, come praise our God! Let his praises be heard. 9God protects us from death and keeps us steady. 10Our God, you tested us, just as silver is tested. 11You trapped us in a net and gave us heavy burdens. 12You sent war chariots to crush our skulls. We traveled through fire and through floods, but you brought us to a land of plenty. 13I will bring sacrifices into your house, my God, and I will do what I promised 14when I was in trouble. 15I will sacrifice my best sheep and offer bulls and goats on your altar. 16All who worship God, come here and listen; I will tell you everything God has done for me. 17I prayed to the Lord, and I praised him. 18If my thoughts had been sinful, he would have refused to hear me. 19But God did listen and answered my prayer. 20Let's praise God! He listened when I prayed, and he is always kind.
