I will tell of all Your wonders.
-Psalm 9:1-

I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praises to You among the nations.
For Your loving kindness is great to the heavens
And Your truth to the clouds.
Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
Let Your glory be above all the earth. 
-Psalm 57:9-11-

I will praise the name of God with song
And magnify Him with thanksgiving

It is good to give thanks to the LORD
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
To declare Your loving kindness in the morning
And Your faithfulness by night,

With my mouth I will give thanks abundantly to the LORD;
And in the midst of many I will praise Him.

You are my God, I extol You.
Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, 
to receive glory and honor and power; 
for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.
