The Nations Called to Praise God

To the leader: with stringed instruments. A Psalm. A Song.

May God be gracious to us and bless us

and make his face to shine upon us,Selah

that your way may be known upon earth,

your saving power among all nations.

3

Let the peoples praise you, O God;

let all the peoples praise you.

 

4

Let the nations be glad and sing for joy,

for you judge the peoples with equity

and guide the nations upon earth.Selah

Let the peoples praise you, O God;

let all the peoples praise you.

 

6

The earth has yielded its increase;

God, our God, has blessed us.

7

May God continue to bless us;

let all the ends of the earth revere him.
