Psalm 116

Thanksgiving for Recovery from Illness

1 I love the Lord, because he has heard
   my voice and my supplications.
2 Because he inclined his ear to me,
   therefore I will call on him as long as I live.
3 The snares of death encompassed me;
   the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me;
   I suffered distress and anguish.
4 Then I called on the name of the Lord:
   ‘O Lord, I pray, save my life!’

5 Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
   our God is merciful.
6 The Lord protects the simple;
   when I was brought low, he saved me.
7 Return, O my soul, to your rest,
   for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.

8 For you have delivered my soul from death,
   my eyes from tears,
   my feet from stumbling.
