Psalm 116 or
Coverdale
Dilexi, quoniam

1I love the LORD, because he has heard the voice of
my supplication, *
because he has inclined his ear to me whenever
I called upon him.

2The cords of death entangled me;
the grip of the grave took hold of me; *
I came to grief and sorrow.

3Then I called upon the Name of the LORD: *
"O LORD, I pray you, save my life."

4Gracious is the LORD and righteous; *
our God is full of compassion.

5The LORD watches over the innocent; *
I was brought very low, and he helped me.

6Turn again to your rest, O my soul. *
for the LORD has treated you well.

7For you have rescued my life from death, *
my eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling.

8I will walk in the presence of the LORD *
in the land of the living.

9I believed, even when I said,
"I have been brought very low." *
In my distress I said, "No one can be trusted."

10How shall I repay the LORD *
for all the good things he has done for me?

11I will lift up the cup of salvation *
and call upon the Name of the LORD.

12I will fulfill my vows to the LORD *
in the presence of all his people.

13Precious in the sight of the LORD *
is the death of his servants.

14O LORD, I am your servant; *
I am your servant and the child of your handmaid;
you have freed me from my bonds.

15I will offer you the sacrifice of thanksgiving *
and call upon the Name of the LORD.

16I will fulfill my vows to the LORD *
in the presence of all his people,

17In the courts of the LORD'S house, *
in the midst of you, O Jerusalem.
Hallelujah!
