1I LOVE the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.

2Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon himas long as I live.

3The cords of death compassed me, and the pains of Sheol gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.

4Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.

5Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.

6The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he saved me.

7Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

8For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, andmy feet from falling.

9I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

10I believe, for I will speak: I was greatly afflicted:

11I said in my haste, All men are a lie.

12What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?

13I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.

14I will pay my vows unto the LORD, yea, in the presence of all his people.

15Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

16O LORD, truly I am thy servant: I am thy servant, the son of thine handmaid; thou hast loosed my bonds.

17I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.

18I will pay my vows unto the LORD, yea, in the presence of all his people.

19In the courts of the LORD’S house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
