I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy.

      Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.

      The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came upon me; I was overcome by trouble and sorrow.

      Then I called on the name of the Lord:

      “O Lord, save me!”

      The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.

      The Lord protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, he saved me.

      Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.

      For you, O Lord, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling

      that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living.

Psalm 116:1-9
