Psalms 116

 1  I love the LORD because he hears my voice
  and my prayer for mercy.
 2  Because he bends down to listen,
  I will pray as long as I have breath!
 3  Death wrapped its ropes around me;
  the terrors of the grave [3]  overtook me.
  I saw only trouble and sorrow.
 4  Then I called on the name of the LORD:
  "Please, LORD, save me!"
 5  How kind the LORD is! How good he is!
  So merciful, this God of ours!
 6  The LORD protects those of childlike faith;
  I was facing death, and he saved me.
 7  Let my soul be at rest again,
  for the LORD has been good to me.
 8  He has saved me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling.  9  And so I walk in the LORD's presence
  as I live here on earth!
 10  I believed in you, so I said,
  "I am deeply troubled, LORD."
 11  In my anxiety I cried out to you,
  "These people are all liars!"
 12  What can I offer the LORD
  for all he has done for me?
 13  I will lift up the cup of salvation
  and praise the LORD's name for saving me.
 14  I will keep my promises to the LORD
  in the presence of all his people.

 15  The LORD cares deeply when his loved ones die.  16  O LORD, I am your servant;
  yes, I am your servant, born into your household;
  you have freed me from my chains.
 17  I will offer you a sacrifice of thanksgiving
  and call on the name of the LORD.
 18  I will fulfill my vows to the LORD
  in the presence of all his people—
 19  in the house of the LORD
  in the heart of Jerusalem.

Praise the LORD!
