I love the LORD because He has heard my appeal for mercy.
Because He has turned His ear to me, I will call [out to Him] as long as I live.
The ropes of death were wrapped around me, and the torments of Sheol overcame me; I encountered trouble and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the LORD: "LORD, save me!"
The LORD is gracious and righteous; our God is compassionate.
The LORD guards the inexperienced; I was helpless, and He saved me.
Return to your rest, my soul, for the LORD has been good to you.
For You, [LORD,] rescued me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling.
I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
I believed, even when I said, "I am severely afflicted."
In my alarm I said, "Everyone is a liar."
How can I repay the LORD all the good He has done for me?
I will take the cup of salvation and worship the LORD.
I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all His people.
The death of His faithful ones is valuable in the LORD's sight.
LORD, I am indeed Your servant; I am Your servant, the son of Your female servant. You have loosened my bonds.
I will offer You a sacrifice of thanksgiving and will worship the LORD.
I will fulfill my vows to the LORD, in the very presence of all His people,
in the courts of the LORD's house-- within you, Jerusalem. Hallelujah!
