1. Shout with joy to God, all you on earth;

2. sing to the glory of his name; proclaim his glorious praise.

3. Say to God, "How great are your deeds! How formidable your power that makes your enemies cower!

4. All the earth bows down to you, making music in praise of you, singing in honor of your name."

5. Come and see God's wonders, his deeds awesome for humans.

6. He has turned the sea into dry land, and the river was crossed on foot. Let us, therefore, rejoice in him.

7. He rules by his might forever, his eyes keeping watch on the peoples, his arm holding the rebels in check.

8. Praise our God, O nations, let the sound of his praise be heard,

9. for he has preserved us among the living and kept our feet from stumbling.

10. Why did you test us, O God; and refine us like silver?

11. You let us fall into the snare; you burdened us with disgrace.

12. You allowed a nobody to rule over us, and we have gone through fire and water, but you have brought us to safety at last.

13. I will bring offerings to your house in fulfillment of my vows -

14. Those I made when assailed with troubles.

15. I will offer holocausts of fatlings, sending up smoke of burning rams, and a sacrifice of goats and bulls.

16. All you who fear God, come and listen; let me tell you what he has done.

17. I cried aloud to him, extolling him with my tongue.

18. If I had nurtured wickedness in my heart, then he would not have heard.

19. But God has listened; he gave heed to my prayer.

20. May God be blessed! He has not rejected my prayer; nor withheld his love from me.

“Nossa Senhora recebeu pela inefável bondade de Jesus a força de suportar até o fim as provações do seu amor. Que você também possa encontrar a força de perseverar com o Senhor até o Calvário!” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
