Psalm 116

I love the Lord, because he heard my voice :
 the voice of my supplication;
Because he inclined his ear to me :
 in the day that I called to him.
The cords of death encompassed me,
   the snares of the grave took hold on me :
 I was in anguish and sorrow.
Then I called upon the name of the Lord :
 ‘O Lord, I beseech you, deliver me!’
Gracious and righteous is the Lord :
 full of compassion is our God.
The Lord preserves the simple :
 when I was brought low, he saved me.
Return, O my soul, to your rest :
 for the Lord has rewarded you.
For you, O Lord,
   have delivered my soul from death :
 my eyes from tears and my feet from falling.
I will walk before the Lord :
 in the land of the living.
I believed that I would perish,
   I was brought very low :
 I said in my haste ‘All men are liars.’
How shall I repay the Lord :
 for all his benefits to me?
I will take up the cup of salvation :
 and call upon the name of the Lord.
I will pay my vows to the Lord :
 in the presence of all his people.
Grievous in the sight of the Lord :
 is the death of his faithful ones.
O Lord, I am your servant,
   your servant and the son of your handmaid :
 you have unloosed my bonds.
I will offer you a sacrifice of thanksgiving :
 and call upon the name of the Lord.
I will pay my vows to the Lord :
 in the presence of all his people,
In the courts of the house of the Lord :
 even in your midst, O Jerusalem.
   Praise the Lord.
