Thanksgiving for Recovery from Grave Illness

A Psalm. A Song at the dedication of the temple. Of David.

1I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up,

and did not let my foes rejoice over me.

2Lord my God, I cried to you for help,

and you have healed me.

3Lord, you brought up my soul from Sheol,

restored me to life from among those gone down to the Pit.

4Sing praises to the Lord, O you his faithful ones,

and give thanks to his holy name.

5For his anger is but for a moment;

his favor is for a lifetime.

Weeping may linger for the night,

but joy comes with the morning.

6As for me, I said in my prosperity,

“I shall never be moved.”

7By your favor, O Lord,

you had established me as a strong mountain;

you hid your face;

I was dismayed.

8To you, O Lord, I cried,

and to the Lord I made supplication:

9“What profit is there in my death,

if I go down to the Pit?

Will the dust praise you?

Will it tell of your faithfulness?

10Hear, O Lord, and be gracious to me!

Lord, be my helper!”

11You have turned my mourning into dancing;

you have taken off my sackcloth

and clothed me with joy,

12so that my soul may praise you and not be silent.

Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever.
