Psalm 116

  I love the LORD because he hears my voice
and my prayer for mercy.
 Because he bends down to listen,
I will pray as long as I have breath!
Death wrapped its ropes around me;
the terrors of the gravet overtook me.
I saw only trouble and sorrow.

Then I called on the name of the LORD:
“Please, LORD, save me!”
How kind the LORD is! How good he is!
So merciful, this God of ours!
The LORD protects those of childlike faith;
I was facing death, and he saved me.
Let my soul be at rest again
for the LORD has been good to me.
He has saved me from death,
my eyes from tears,
my feet from stumbling.

And so I walk in the LORD’s presence
as I live here on earth!
I believed in you, so I said,
“I am deeply troubled, LORD.”
In my anxiety I cried out to you,
“These people are all liars!”
What can I offer the LORD
for all he has done for me?

I will lift up the cup of salvation
and praise the LORD’s name for saving me.
  I will keep my promises to the LORD
in the presence of all his people.
Psalm 116:1-14 NLT
