1 Be joyful in God, all the earth; ♦︎
sing the glory of his name;
sing the glory of his praise.
10 You brought us into the snare; ♦︎
you laid heavy burdens upon our backs.
11 You let enemies ride over our heads;
we went through fire and water; ♦︎
but you brought us out into a place of liberty.
12 I will come into your house with burnt offerings
and will pay you my vows, ♦︎
which my lips uttered
and my mouth promised when I was in trouble.
17 But in truth God has heard me; ♦︎
he has heeded the voice of my prayer.
18 Blessed be God, who has not rejected my prayer, ♦︎
nor withheld his loving mercy from me.
