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 simple hearted;
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.
