Sing Praises to the Lord

33 You are the Lord’s people.
Obey him and celebrate!
    He deserves your praise.
Praise the Lord with harps!
Use harps with ten strings
    to make music for him.
    Sing a new song. Shout!
    Play beautiful music.

The Lord is truthful;
    he can be trusted.
He loves justice and fairness,
    and he is kind to everyone
    everywhere on earth.

The Lord made the heavens
    and everything in them
    by his word.
He scooped up the ocean
    and stored the water.
Everyone in this world
should worship
    and honor
    the Lord!
As soon as he spoke
    the world was created;
    at his command,
    the earth was formed.

10 The Lord destroys the plans
    and spoils the schemes
    of the nations.
11 But what the Lord has planned
will stand forever.
    His thoughts never change.
12 The Lord blesses each nation
that worships only him.
    He blesses his chosen ones.
13 The Lord looks at the world
14     from his throne in heaven,
    and he watches us all.
15 The Lord gave us each a mind,
    and nothing we do
    can be hidden from him.

16 Mighty armies alone
    cannot win wars for a king;
    great strength by itself
    cannot keep a soldier safe.
17 In war the strength of a horse
cannot be trusted
    to take you to safety.
18 But the Lord watches over
    who honor him
    and trust his kindness.
19 He protects them from death
    and starvation.

20 We depend on you, Lord,
    to help and protect us.
21 You make our hearts glad
    because we trust you,
    the only God.
22 Be kind and bless us!
    We depend on you.
