I WILL extol You, O LORD, for You have a lifted me up,
And have not let my foes b rejoice over me. 2 O LORD my God, I cried out to You,
And You c healed me. 3 O LORD, d You brought my soul up from the grave;
You have kept me alive, 1 that I should not go down to the pit.
e Sing praise to the LORD, you saints of His,
And give thanks at the remembrance of 2 His holy name. 5 For f His anger is but for a moment,
g His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a night,
But 3 joy comes in the morning.
Now in my prosperity I said,
"I shall never be 4 moved." 7 LORD, by Your favor You have made my mountain stand strong;
h You hid Your face, and I was troubled.
I cried out to You, O LORD;
And to the LORD I made supplication: 9 "What profit is there in my blood,
When I go down to the pit?
i Will the dust praise You?
Will it declare Your truth? 10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy on me;
LORD, be my helper!"
j You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
You have put off 5 my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, 12 To the end that my 6 glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
