Psalm 30

Joy Comes with the Morning

1 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.

4 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.

6 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.

8 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!"

11 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.
