Psalm 116:1–8

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death

1 I alove the Lord, because He has heard My voice and my supplications.

2 Because He has inclined His ear to me,

Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.

3 bThe 1pains of death surrounded me,

And the 2pangs of Sheol 3laid hold of me;

I found trouble and sorrow.

4 Then I called upon the name of the Lord:

“O Lord, I implore You, deliver my soul!”

5 cGracious is the Lord, and drighteous;

Yes, our God is merciful.

6 The Lord preserves the simple;

I was brought low, and He saved me.

7 Return to your erest, O my soul,

For fthe Lord has dealt bountifully with you.

8 gFor You have delivered my soul from death,

My eyes from tears,

And my feet from falling.
