I will extol You, O Lord, for You have drawn me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me. 2 O Lord my God, I cried to You for help and You have healed me. 3 O Lord, You have brought up my soul from Sheol; You restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit. 4 Sing praises to the Lord, O you His saints and give thanks to His holy name. 5 For His anger is but for a moment and His favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning. 6 As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved”. 7 By Your favor, O Lord, You made my mountain stand strong; You hid Your face; I was dismayed. 8 To You, O Lord, I cry and to the Lord I plead for mercy: 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? 10 Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me! O Lord, be my helper”! 11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, 12 that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever!
