For the end, a Song of Psalm of resurrection.
1 Shout unto God, all the earth. 2 O sing praises to his name; give glory to his praise. 3 Say unto God, How awful are thy works! through the greatness of thy power thine enemies shall lie to thee. 4 Let all the earth worship thee, and sing to thee; let them sing to thy name. Pause.
5 Come and behold the works of God; he is terrible in his counsels beyond the children of men. 6 Who turns the sea into dry land; they shall go through the river on foot; there shall we rejoice in him, 7 who by his power 1is Lord over the age, his eyes look upon the nations; let not them that provoke him be exalted in themselves. Pause.
8 Bless our God, ye Gentiles, and make the voice of his praise to be heard; 9 who quickens my soul in life, and does not suffer my feet to be moved. 10 For thou, O God, has proved us; thou hast tried us with fire as silver is tried. 11 Thou broughtest us into the snare; thou laidest afflictions on our back. 12 Thou didst mount men upon our heads; we went through the fire and water; but thou broughtest us out into a place of refreshment.
13 I will go into thine house with whole-burnt-offerings; I will pay thee my vows, 14 which my lips framed, and my mouth uttered in my affliction. 15 I will offer to thee whole-burnt-sacrifices full of marrow, with incense and rams; I will sacrifice to thee oxen with goats. Pause.
16 Come, hear, and I will tell, all ye that fear God, how great things he has done for my soul. 17 I cried to him with my mouth, and exalted him with my tongue. 18 If I have regarded iniquity in my heart, let not the Lord hearken to me. 19 Therefore God has hearkened to me; he has attended to the voice of my prayer. 20 Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
For the end, a Psalm of David among the Hymns.
1 God be merciful to us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us. Pause. 2 That men may know thy way on the earth, thy salvation among all nations. 3 Let the nations, O God, give thanks to thee; let all the nations give thanks to thee. 4 Let the nations rejoice and exult, for thou shalt judge the peoples in equity, and shalt guide the nations on the earth. Pause. 5 Let the peoples, O God, give thanks to thee; let all the peoples give thanks to thee. 6 The earth has yielded her fruit; let God, our God bless us. 7 Let God bless us; and let all the ends of the earth fear him.
1 Or, has dominion for ever.
