1 {To the Chanter, a Psalm and song of David} Thou, O God, art praised in Zion; and unto thee shall the vow be performed in Jerusalem. 2 Thou that hearest the prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come. 3 Our misdeeds prevail against us; O be thou merciful unto our sins. 4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and receivest unto thee; he shall dwell in thy court, and shall be satisfied with the pleasures of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
5 Thou shalt show us wonderful things in thy righteousness, O God of our salvation, thou that art the hope of all the ends of the earth, and of them that remain in the broad sea - 6 who in his strength setteth fast the mountains, and is girded about with power; 7 who stilleth the raging of the sea, the roaring of his waves, and the madness of the people. 8 They that dwell in the uttermost parts of the earth shall be afraid at thy tokens; thou makest both the morning and evening stars to praise thee.
9 Thou visitest the earth, thou waterest it, and makest it very plenteous. The river of God is full of waters; thou preparest man his corn, and thus thou providest for the earth. 10 Thou waterest her furrows, thou breakest the hard clots thereof, thou makest it soft with the drops of rain, and blessest the increase of it. 11 Thou crownest the year with thy good, and thy footsteps drop fatness. 12 They shall drop upon the dwellings of the wilderness; and the little hills shall rejoice on every side. 13 The folds shall be full of sheep; the valleys also shall stand so thick with corn, that they shall laugh and sing.
