Psalm 30

I will exalt you, O Lord,
   for you have drawn me up from the depths :
 and have not suffered my foes to triumph over me.
O Lord my God, I cried to you :
 and you have made me whole.
You brought me back, O Lord, from the land of silence :
 you saved my life from among those that go down to the Pit.
Sing praises to the Lord, all you his faithful ones :
 and give thanks to his holy name.
For if in his anger is havoc,
   in his good favour is life :
 heaviness may endure for a night,
   but joy comes in the morning.
In my prosperity I said ‘I shall never be moved :
 your goodness, O Lord, has set me on so firm a hill.’
Then you hid your face from me :
 and I was greatly dismayed.
I cried to you, O God :
 and made my petition humbly to my Lord.
‘What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the Pit :
 can the dust give you thanks, or declare your faithfulness?
‘Hear, O Lord, and be merciful :
 O Lord, be my helper.’
You have turned my lamentation into dancing :
 you have put off my sackcloth and girded me with joy,
That my heart may sing your praise and never be silent :
 O Lord my God, I will give you thanks for ever.
