Psalm 116:1-9 New International Version

Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death

116 1  I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. 2  Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. 3  The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came over me; I was overcome by distress and sorrow. 4  Then I called on the name of the Lord: "Lord, save me!" 5  The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. 6  The Lord protects the unwary; when I was brought low, he saved me. 7  Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you. 8  For you, Lord, have delivered me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, 9  that I may walk before the Lordin the land of the living.
