Psalm 77:1-2, 11–20 (ESV)

1 I cry aloud to God, aloud to God, and he will hear me. 

2 In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord; in the night my hand is stretched out without wearying; my soul refuses to be comforted.

11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. 

12 I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds. 

13 Your way, O God, is holy. What god is great like our God? 

14 You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples. 

15 You with your arm redeemed your people, the children of Jacob and Joseph. Selah

16 When the waters saw you, O God, when the waters saw you, they were afraid; indeed, the deep trembled. 

17 The clouds poured out water; the skies gave forth thunder; your arrows flashed on every side. 

18 The crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind; your lightnings lighted up the world; the earth trembled and shook. 

19 Your way was through the sea, your path through the great waters; yet your footprints were unseen. 

20 You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

Psalm 8 (ESV)

To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of David. 

1 O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. 

2 Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. 

3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 

4 what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? 

5 Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. 

6 You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, 

7 all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, 

8 the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas. 

9 O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Psalm 104:24–35 (ESV)

24 O Lord, how manifold are your works! In wisdom have you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. 

25 Here is the sea, great and wide, which teems with creatures innumerable, living things both small and great. 

26 There go the ships, and Leviathan, which you formed to play in it. 

27 These all look to you, to give them their food in due season. 

28 When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are filled with good things. 

29 When you hide your face, they are dismayed; when you take away their breath, they die and return to their dust. 

30 When you send forth your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground. 

31 May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in his works, 

32 who looks on the earth and it trembles, who touches the mountains and they smoke! 

33 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being. 

34 May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the Lord. 

35 Let sinners be consumed from the earth, and let the wicked be no more! Bless the Lord, O my soul! Praise the Lord!

Psalm 97 (ESV)

1 The Lordreigns, let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad! 

2 Clouds and thick darkness are all around him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. 

3 Fire goes before him and burns up his adversaries all around. 

4 His lightnings light up the world; the earth sees and trembles. 

5 The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth. 

6 The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the peoples see his glory. 

7 All worshipers of images are put to shame, who make their boast in worthless idols; worship him, all you gods! 

8 Zion hears and is glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoice, because of your judgments, O Lord. 

9 For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods. 

10 O you who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the lives of his saints; he delivers them from the hand of the wicked. 

11 Light is sown for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart. 

12 Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous, and give thanks to his holy name!
