Praise(A) our God, all peoples,
    let the sound of his praise be heard;
he has preserved our lives(B)
    and kept our feet from slipping.(C)
10 For you, God, tested(D) us;
    you refined us like silver.(E)
11 You brought us into prison(F)
    and laid burdens(G) on our backs.
12 You let people ride over our heads;(H)
    we went through fire and water,
    but you brought us to a place of abundance.(I)

13 I will come to your temple with burnt offerings(J)
    and fulfill my vows(K) to you—
14 vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke
    when I was in trouble.
15 I will sacrifice fat animals to you
    and an offering of rams;
    I will offer bulls and goats.(L)

16 Come and hear,(M) all you who fear God;
    let me tell(N) you what he has done for me.
17 I cried out to him with my mouth;
    his praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished sin in my heart,
    the Lord would not have listened;(O)
19 but God has surely listened
    and has heard(P) my prayer.
20 Praise be to God,
    who has not rejected(Q) my prayer
    or withheld his love from me!
