Psalm - Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost
1 O shout with joy to God, all the earth:
sing to the honour of his name,
and give him glory as his praise.
2 Say to God ‘How fearful are your works:
because of your great might
your enemies shall cower before you.’
3 All the earth shall worship you:
and sing to you, and sing praises to your name.
4 Come then and see what God has done:
how terrible are his dealings with the children of Adam.
5 He turned the sea into dry land,
they crossed the river on foot:
then were we joyful because of him.
6 By his power he rules for ever,
his eyes keep watch on the nations:
and rebels shall never rise against him.
7 O bless our God, you peoples:
and cause his praises to resound,
8 Who has held our souls in life:
who has not suffered our feet to slip.
9 For you have proved us, O God:
you have tried us as silver is tried.
10 You brought us into the net:
you laid sharp torment on our loins.
11 You let our enemies ride over our heads,
we went through fire and water:
but you brought us out into a place of liberty.
