1 It is lovely to me that the Lord heareth my voice, my supplications.
2 For he hath inclined his ear unto me: therefore throughout all my days will I call on him.
3 The bands of death had compassed me, and the pangs of the nether world had overtaken me; I had met with distress and sorrow:
4 I then called on the name of the Lord, I beseech thee, O Lord, release my soul.
5 Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; and our God is merciful.
6 The Lord preserveth the simple: I was in misery, and he helped me.
7 Return, O my soul, unto thy rest; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee.
8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from falling.
9 I will walk before the Lord in the land of life.
10 I believe, therefore will I speak: I was greatly afflicted;
11 I indeed said in my despondency, Every man is a liar.
12 What shall I give in return unto the Lord for all his bounties toward me?
13 The cup of salvation will I lift up, and on the name of the Lord will I call.
14 My vows will I pay unto the Lord, yea, in the presence of all his people.
15 Grievous in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his pious ones.
16 O Lord, truly am I thy servant, I am thy servant,the son of thy handmaid: thou hast loosened my fetters.
17 Unto thee will I offer the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and on the name of the Lord will I call.
18 My vows will I pay unto the Lord, yea, in the presence of all his people,
19 In the courts of the house of the Lord, in thy midst, O Jerusalem. Hallelujah.
