Psalm 116A

1 I love the LORD, for he has heard

 my voice, my appeal;

 2 for he has turned his ear to me

 whenever I call.

3 They surrounded me, the snares of death;

 the anguish of the grave has found me;

 anguish and sorrow I found.

 4 I called on the name of the LORD:

 “Deliver my soul, O LORD!”

5 How gracious is the LORD, and just;

 our God has compassion.

 6 The LORD protects the simple;

 I was brought low, and he saved me.

7 Turn back, my soul, to your rest,

 for the LORD has been good to you;

 8 he has kept my soul from death,

 my eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling.

 9 I will walk in the presence of the LORD

 in the land of the living.
