Psalm of the Day – April 28, 2020 (Psalm 66)

1   Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth; 
2        sing the glory of his name; 
          give to him glorious praise. 
3   Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! 
          Because of your great power, your enemies cringe before you. 
4   All the earth worships you; 
          they sing praises to you, 
          sing praises to your name. Selah

5   Come and see what God has done: 
          he is awesome in his deeds among mortals. 
6   He turned the sea into dry land; 
          they passed through the river on foot. 
     There we rejoiced in him, 
7        who rules by his might forever, 
     whose eyes keep watch on the nations — 
          let the rebellious not exalt themselves. Selah

8   Bless our God, O peoples, 
          let the sound of his praise be heard, 
9   who has kept us among the living, 
          and has not let our feet slip. 
10  For you, O God, have tested us; 
          you have tried us as silver is tried. 
11  You brought us into the net; 
          you laid burdens on our backs; 
12  you let people ride over our heads; 
          we went through fire and through water; 
     yet you have brought us out to a spacious place.

13  I will come into your house with burnt offerings; 
          I will pay you my vows, 
14  those that my lips uttered 
          and my mouth promised when I was in trouble. 
15  I will offer to you burnt offerings of fatlings, 
          with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams; 
     I will make an offering of bulls and goats. Selah

16  Come and hear, all you who fear God, 
          and I will tell what he has done for me. 
17  I cried aloud to him, 
          and he was extolled with my tongue. 
18  If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, 
          the Lord would not have listened. 
19  But truly God has listened; 
          he has given heed to the words of my prayer.

20  Blessed be God, 
          because he has not rejected my prayer 
          or removed his steadfast love from me.
