1I will exalt You, O my Lord, for You have lifted me
out of the depths and did not let my foes gloat over me.
2O Lord my God, I called to you for help and healing came;
3You brought me up from grave and pit, and spared me from their shame.
4Sing to the Lord, you saints of His, and praise His name in song;
5His anger lasts a moment, but His favor all life-long.
For weeping may remain all night, and heavy sorrow borne;
But with the dawn returns the light; rejoicing comes with morn.
6When I felt safe, I boldly said, “I’ll never shaken be!”
7O Lord, You made my hill stand firm, when You showed grace to me.
But Lord, when you did hide your face, I surely was dismayed;
8To You I called; yes, to the Lord my cry for mercy made:
9“What gain is there if I’m destroyed and go down to the pit?
Will dust praise You? Will faithfulness of God be told by it?
10Hear me, O Lord, and be my help! Be merciful to me;
O Lord my God, I cry to You – my help, O Lord, now be!”
11You turned my wailing into dance; my feet with dance employ;
My sackcloth You removed and then You clothed me with great joy!
12That my heart may sing praise to You, and never silent be;
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You eternally!!
