Psalm 116. Dilexi, quoniam.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Twenty-fourth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. I love the Lord, because he has heard the voice of my supplication,*
    because he has inclined his ear to me whenever I called upon him.
  2. The cords of death entangled me; the grip of the grave took hold of me; *
    I came to grief and sorrow.
  3. Then I called upon the Name of the Lord: *
    O Lord, I pray you, save my life.
  4. Gracious is the Lord and righteous; *
    our God is full of compassion.
  5. The Lord watches over the innocent; *
    I was brought very low, and he helped me.
  6. Turn again to your rest, O my soul, *
    for the Lord has treated you well.
  7. For you have rescued my life from death, *
    my eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling.
  8. I will walk in the presence of the Lord *
    in the land of the living.
  9. I believed, even when I said, I have been brought very low. *
    In my distress I said, "No one can be trusted."
  10. How shall I repay the Lord *
    for all the good things he has done for me?
  11. I will lift up the cup of salvation *
    and call upon the Name of the Lord.
  12. I will fulfill my vows to the Lord *
    in the presence of all his people.
  13. Precious in the sight of the Lord *
    is the death of his servants.
  14. O Lord, I am your servant; *
    I am your servant and the child of your handmaid; you have freed me from my bonds.
  15. I will offer you the sacrifice of thanksgiving *
    and call upon the Name of the Lord.
  16. I will fulfill my vows to the Lord *
    in the presence of all his people,
  17. In the courts of the Lord's house, *
    in the midst of you, O Jerusalem. Hallelujah!
