Psalm 116

I love the Lord because he hears my voice, my pleas for mercy.
I will call on him as long as I live
    because he turns his ear toward me.
The ropes of death became tangled around me.
    The horrors of the grave took hold of me.
        I experienced pain and agony.
But I kept calling on the name of the Lord:
    “Please, Lord, rescue me!”

The Lord is merciful and righteous.
Our God is compassionate.
The Lord protects defenseless people.
    When I was weak, he saved me.
Be at peace again, my soul,
    because the Lord has been good to you.

You saved me from death.
You saved my eyes from tears and my feet from stumbling.
I will walk in the Lord’s presence in this world of the living.
10 I kept my faith even when I said,
    “I am suffering terribly.”
11 I also said when I was panic-stricken,
    “Everyone is undependable.”
12 How can I repay the Lord
    for all the good that he has done for me?
13 I will take the cup of salvation
    and call on the name of the Lord.
14 I will keep my vows to the Lord
    in the presence of all his people.
15 Precious in the sight of the Lord
    is the death of his faithful ones.
16 O Lord, I am indeed your servant.
    I am your servant,
        the son of your female servant.
You have freed me from my chains.
17 I will bring a song of thanksgiving to you as a sacrifice.
I will call on the name of the Lord.
18 I will keep my vows to the Lord
    in the presence of all his people,
19         in the courtyards of the Lord’s house,
            in the middle of Jerusalem.

Hallelujah!
