  • Bible Text: Psalm 116

    1 I love the Lord, because he has heard

        my voice and my pleas for mercy.

    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, deliver my soul!”

    5 Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;

        our God is merciful.

    6 The Lord preserves 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;

    9 I will walk before the Lord

        in the land of the living.

    10 I believed, even when I spoke:

        “I am greatly afflicted”;

    11 I said in my alarm,

        “All mankind are liars.”

    12 What shall I render to the Lord

        for all his benefits to me?

    13 I will lift up the cup of salvation

        and call on the name of the Lord,

    14 I will pay 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 saints.

    16 O Lord, I am your servant;

        I am your servant, the son of your maidservant.

        You have loosed my bonds.

    17 I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving

        and call on the name of the Lord.

    18 I will pay my vows to the Lord

        in the presence of all his people,

    19 in the courts of the house of the Lord,

        in your midst, O Jerusalem.

        Praise the Lord!
