Shout joyfully to God, all you on earth; sing of his glorious name;
give him glorious praise. Say to God:
“How awesome your deeds! Before your great strength your enemies cringe.
All on earth fall in worship before you; they sing of you, sing of your name.”

Come and hear, all you who fear God, while I recount what has been done for me.
I called to the Lord with my mouth; praise was upon my tongue.
Had I cherished evil in my heart, the Lord would not have heard.
But God did hear and listened to my voice in prayer.
Blessed be God, who did not refuse me the kindness I sought in prayer.

Psalm 66:1-4; 16-20
