1 I love the Lord,*
because he heard the voice of my prayer,
2 Because he inclined his ear to me;*
therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
3 The snares of death encompassed me, and the pains of the Grave laid hold of me;*
I suffered trouble and sorrow.
4 Then I called upon the Name of the Lord:*
"O Lord, I beseech you, deliver my soul."
5 Gracious is the Lord and righteous;*
indeed, our God is full of compassion.
6 The Lord preserves the simple;*
I was in misery, and he helped me.
7 Turn again to your rest, O my soul,*
for the Lord has rewarded you.
8 You have delivered my soul from death,*
my eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling.
9 I will walk before the Lord*
in the land of the living.
10 I believed, and therefore will I speak: "I am greatly troubled."*
I said in my haste, "All men are liars."
11 What shall I give unto the Lord*
for all the benefits that he has done unto me?
12 I will lift up the cup of salvation*
and call upon the Name of the Lord.
13 I will pay my vows unto the Lord in the presence of all his people;*
dear in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
14 O Lord, I am your servant;*
I am your servant, and the child of your handmaid; you have broken my bonds asunder.
15 I will offer you 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 you, O Jerusalem. Praise the Lord.
