Psalm 116

8,6,8,6

1I love the Lord, because my voice

and prayers he did hear.

2I, while I live, will call on him,

who bow’d to me his ear.

3Of death the cords and sorrows did

about me compass round;

The pains of hell took hold on me,

I grief and trouble found.

4Upon the name of God the Lord

then did I call, and say,

Deliver thou my soul, O Lord,

I do thee humbly pray.

5God merciful and righteous is,

yea, gracious is our Lord.

6God saves the meek: I was brought low,

he did me help afford.

7O thou my soul, do thou return

unto thy quiet rest;

For largely, lo, the Lord to thee

his bounty hath exprest.

8For my distressed soul from death

deliver’d was by thee:

Thou didst my mourning eyes from tears,

my feet from falling, free.

9I in the land of those that live

will walk the Lord before.

10I did believe, therefore I spake:

I was afflicted sore.

11I said, when I was in my haste,

that all men liars be.

12What shall I render to the Lord

for all his gifts to me?

13I’ll of salvation take the cup,

on God’s name will I call:

14I’ll pay my vows now to the Lord

before his people all.

15Dear in God’s sight is his saints’ death.

16Thy servant, Lord, am I;

Thy servant sure, thine handmaid’s son:

my bands thou didst untie.

17Thank-off ‘rings I to thee will give,

and on God’s name will call.

18I’ll pay my vows now to the Lord

before his people all;

19Within the courts of God’s own house,

within the midst of thee,

O city of Jerusalem.

Praise to the Lord give ye.
