Exaltabo te, Domine
1 I will magnify you, O Lord, for you have lifted me up,*
and have not let my foes triumph over me.
2 O Lord my God, I cried unto you,*
and you have made me whole.
3 You, Lord, have brought my soul out of the Grave;*
you have saved my life from among those who go down to the Pit.
4 Sing praises unto the Lord, O you saints of his,*
and give thanks unto him for the remembrance of his holiness.
5 For his wrath endures but the twinkling of an eye, his pleasure for a lifetime;*
heaviness may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
6 In my prosperity I said, "I shall never be moved;*
you, Lord, of your goodness, have made my hill so strong."
7 You turned your face from me,*
and I was distressed.
8 Then I cried unto you, O Lord,*
and came to my Lord most humbly.
9 What profit is there in my bloodshed,*
if I go down into the Pit?
10 Shall the dust give thanks unto you?*
Or shall it declare your faithfulness?
11 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me.*
O Lord, be my helper.
12 You have turned my lamentation into dancing;*
you have put off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness.
13 Therefore shall my heart sing of your praise without ceasing.*
O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto you for ever.
