Psalm 116

1  I love the Lord,
      for he has heard the voice of my supplication; 
   because he inclined his ear to me
      on the day I called to him.
2  The snares of death encompassed me;
      the pains of hell took hold of me; 
   by grief and sorrow was I held.
3  Then I called upon the name of the Lord: 
   ‘O Lord, I beg you, deliver my soul.’
4  Gracious is the Lord and righteous; 
   our God is full of compassion.
5  The Lord watches over the simple; 
   I was brought very low and he saved me.
6  Turn again to your rest, O my soul, 
   for the Lord has been gracious to you.
7  For you have delivered my soul from death, 
   my eyes from tears and my feet from falling.
8  I will walk before the Lord 
   in the land of the living.
9  I believed that I should perish
      for I was sorely troubled; 
   and I said in my alarm,
      ‘Everyone is a liar.’
10  How shall I repay the Lord 
   for all the benefits he has given to me?
11  I will lift up the cup of salvation 
   and call upon the name of the Lord.
12  I will fulfil my vows to the Lord 
   in the presence of all his people.
13  Precious in the sight of the Lord 
   is the death of his faithful servants.
14  O Lord, I am your servant, 
   your servant, the child of your handmaid;
      you have freed me from my bonds.
15  I will offer to you a sacrifice of thanksgiving 
   and call upon the name of the Lord.
16  I will fulfil my vows to the Lord 
   in the presence of all his people,
17  In the courts of the house of the Lord, 
   in the midst of you, O Jerusalem.
      Alleluia.
