Joy Comes with the Morning
A Psalm of David. A song at the dedication of a the temple.1 I will b extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up
and have not let my foes c rejoice over me.
2 O Lord my God, I d cried to you for help,
and you have e healed me.
3 O Lord, you have brought up my soul from f Sheol;
you restored me to life from among those who g go down to the pit. ▼
▼ Or to life, that I should not go down to the pit
4 Sing praises to the Lord, O you i his saints,
and j give thanks to his holy name. ▼
▼ Hebrew to the memorial of his holiness (see Exodus 3:15)
5 l For his anger is but for a moment,
and m his favor is for a lifetime. ▼
▼ Or and in his favor is life
o Weeping may tarry for the night,
but p joy comes with the morning.
6 As for me, I said in my q prosperity,
“I shall never be r moved.”
7 By your favor, O Lord,
you made my s mountain stand strong;
you t hid your face;
I was u dismayed.
8 To you, O Lord, I cry,
and v to the Lord I plead for mercy:
9 “What profit is there in my death ▼
▼ Hebrew in my blood
if I go down to the pit? ▼
▼ Or to corruption
Will y the dust praise you?
Will it tell of your faithfulness?
10 z Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me!
O Lord, be my helper!”
11 You have turned for me my mourning into aa dancing;
you have loosed my sackcloth
and clothed me with gladness,
12 that my ab glory may sing your praise and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever!
