O God of Our Salvation
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. A Song.
1Praise #Ps. 62:1 is due to you,#65:1 Or Praise waits for you in silence O God, in Zion,
and to you shall #See Ps. 50:14vows be performed.
2O you who #2 Kgs. 19:20 hear prayer,
to you #See Ps. 86:9shall all flesh come.
3When #See Ps. 38:4 iniquities prevail against me,
you #Ps. 79:9; Isa. 6:7; See Ps. 51:2atone for our transgressions.
4 # [Ps. 33:12] Blessed is the one you choose and bring near,
to #Ps. 84:4; See Ps. 27:4 dwell in your courts!
We shall be #See Ps. 16:11satisfied with the goodness of your house,
the holiness of your temple!
5By #Ps. 45:4; 106:22; Deut. 10:21; 2 Sam. 7:23; [Rev. 15:3] awesome deeds you answer us with righteousness,
O God of our salvation,
the hope of all #See Ps. 22:27the ends of the earth
and of the farthest seas;
6the one who by his strength established the mountains,
being #Ps. 93:1girded with might;
7who #Ps. 89:9; 93:3, 4; 107:29; Matt. 8:26; [Jer. 5:22] stills the roaring of the seas,
the roaring of their waves,
# Ps. 74:23; Isa. 17:12, 13 the tumult of the peoples,
8so that those who dwell at the ends of the earth are in awe at your signs.
You make the going out of the morning and the evening to shout for joy.
9You visit the earth and #Ps. 68:9; 72:6; Lev. 26:4; See Job 5:10 water it;#65:9 Or and make it overflow
you greatly enrich it;
# [Ps. 46:4] the river of God is full of water;
# [Ps. 147:14] you provide their grain,
for so you have prepared it.
10You water its furrows abundantly,
settling its ridges,
softening it with #Deut. 32:2showers,
and blessing its growth.
11You crown the year with your bounty;
your wagon tracks #Job 36:28overflow with abundance.
12 # Joel 2:22; [Job 38:26, 27] The pastures of the wilderness overflow,
the hills #Isa. 55:12gird themselves with joy,
13 # Isa. 30:23 the meadows clothe themselves with flocks,
the valleys deck themselves with grain,
they #Ps. 98:8; [Isa. 44:23]shout and sing together for joy.
