David's Song of Thanks

8Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;

make known his deeds among the peoples!

9Sing to him, sing praises to him;

tell of all his wondrous works!

10Glory in his holy name;

let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!

11Seek the Lord and his strength;

seek his presence continually!

12Remember the wondrous works that he has done,

his miracles and the judgments he uttered,

13O offspring of Israel his servant,

children of Jacob, his chosen ones!

14He is the Lord our God;

his judgments are in all the earth.

15Remember his covenant forever,

the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations,

16the covenant that he made with Abraham,

his sworn promise to Isaac,

17which he confirmed to Jacob as a statute,

to Israel as an everlasting covenant,

18saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan,

as your portion for an inheritance.”

19When you were few in number,

of little account, and sojourners in it,

20wandering from nation to nation,

from one kingdom to another people,

21he allowed no one to oppress them;

he rebuked kings on their account,

22saying, “Touch not my anointed ones,

do my prophets no harm!”

23Sing to the Lord, all the earth!

Tell of his salvation from day to day.

24Declare his glory among the nations,

his marvelous works among all the peoples!

25For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,

and he is to be feared above all gods.

26For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,

but the Lord made the heavens.

27Splendor and majesty are before him;

strength and joy are in his place.

28Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples,

ascribe to the Lord glory and strength!

29Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;

bring an offering and come before him!

Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness;2

30tremble before him, all the earth;

yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.

31Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice,

and let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”

32Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;

let the field exult, and everything in it!

33Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy

before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth.

34Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;

for his steadfast love endures forever!
