Psalm 116. Dilexi, quoniam.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Twenty-fourth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. MY delight is in the Lord *
    because he hath heard the voice of my prayer;
  2. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me; *
    therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
  3. The snares of death compassed me round about, *
    and the pains of hell gat hold upon me.
  4. I found trouble and heaviness; then called I upon the Name of the Lord; *
    O Lord, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
  5. Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; *
    yea, our God is merciful.
  6. The Lord preserveth the simple: *
    I was in misery, and he helped me.
  7. Turn again then unto thy rest, O my soul; *
    for the Lord hath rewarded thee.
  8. And why? thou hast delivered my soul from death, *
    mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
  9. I will walk before the Lord *
    in the land of the living.
  10. I believed, and therefore will I speak; but I was sore troubled: *
    I said in my haste, All men are liars.
  11. What reward shall I give unto the Lord *
    for all the benefits that he hath done unto me?
  12. I will receive the cup of salvation, *
    and call upon the Name of the Lord.
  13. I will pay my vows now in the presence of all his people: *
    right dear in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
  14. Behold, O Lord, how that I am thy servant; *
    I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid; thou hast broken my bonds in sunder.
  15. I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, *
    and will call upon the Name of the Lord.
  16. I will pay my vows unto the Lord, in the sight of all his people, *
    in the courts of the Lord's house; even in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise the Lord.
