Psalm 30

2 I will extol you, LORD, for you have raised me up,

 and have not let my enemies rejoice over me.

3 O LORD my God, I cried to you for help,

 and you have healed me.

 4 O LORD, you have lifted up my soul from the grave,

 restored me to life from those who sink into the pit.

5 Sing psalms to the LORD, you faithful ones;

 give thanks to his holy name.

 6 His anger lasts a moment; his favor all through life.

 At night come tears, but dawn brings joy.

7 I said to myself in my good fortune:

 “I shall never be shaken.”

 8 O LORD, your favor had set me like a mountain stronghold.

 Then you hid your face, and I was put to confusion.

9 To you, O LORD, I cried,

 to my God I appealed for mercy:

 10 “What profit is my lifeblood, my going to the grave?

 Can dust give you thanks, or proclaim your faithfulness?”

11 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy on me;

 be my helper, O LORD.

 12 You have changed my mourning into dancing,

 removed my sackcloth and girded me with joy.

 13 So my soul sings psalms to you, and will not be silent.

 O LORD my God, I will thank you forever.
