Psalms 116

1I have given my love to the Lord, because he has given ear to the voice of my cry and my prayer. 2He has let my request come before him, and I will make my prayer to him all my days. 3The nets of death were round me, and the pains of the underworld had me in their grip; I was full of trouble and sorrow. 4Then I made my prayer to the Lord, saying, O Lord, take my soul out of trouble. 5The Lord is full of grace and righteousness; truly, he is a God of mercy. 6The Lord keeps the simple; I was made low, and he was my saviour. 7Come back to your rest, O my soul; for the Lord has given you your reward. 8You have taken my soul from the power of death, keeping my eyes from weeping, and my feet from falling. 9I will go before the Lord in the land of the living. 10I still had faith, though I said, I am in great trouble; 11Though I said in my fear, All men are false. 12What may I give to the Lord for all the good things which he has done for me? 13I will take the cup of salvation, and give praise to the name of the Lord. 14I will make the offering of my oath to the Lord, even before all his people. 15Dear in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his saints. 16O Lord, truly I am your servant; I am your servant, the son of her who is your servant; by you have my cords been broken. 17I will give an offering of praise to you, and make my prayer in the name of the Lord. 18I will make the offerings of my oath, even before all his people; 19In the Lord's house, even in Jerusalem. Praise be to the Lord.
