When the Lord Saves You from Death

116 I love you, Lord!
    You answered my prayers.
You paid attention to me,
    and so I will pray to you
    as long as I live.
Death attacked from all sides,
    and I was captured
    by its painful chains.
But when I was really hurting,
I prayed and said,
    Lord,
    please don’t let me die!”

You are kind, Lord,
    so good and merciful.
You protect ordinary people,
    and when I was helpless,
    you saved me
and treated me so kindly
    that I don’t need
    to worry anymore.

You, Lord, have saved
    my life from death,
    my eyes from tears,
    my feet from stumbling.
Now I will walk at your side
    in this land of the living.
10 I was faithful to you
    when I was suffering,
11     though in my confusion I said,
    “I can’t trust anyone!”

12 What must I give you, Lord,
    for being so good to me?
13 I will pour out an offering
    of wine to you,
    and I will pray in your name
because you
    have saved me.
14 I will keep my promise to you
    when your people meet.
15 You are deeply concerned
    when one of your loyal people
    faces death.

16 I worship you, Lord,
    just as my mother did,
    and you have rescued me
    from the chains of death.
17 I will offer you a sacrifice
to show how grateful I am,
    and I will pray.
18 I will keep my promise to you
    when your people
19 gather
    at your temple
in Jerusalem.
    Shout praises to the Lord!
