I will praise the LORD!
Morning glory — photo by David KItz
I love theLORD,for he heard my voice;
he heard my cryfor mercy.
Because he turned his earto me,
I will call on him as long as I live.
The cords of deathentangled me,
the anguish of the grave came over me;
I was overcome by distress and sorrow.
Then I called on the nameof theLORD:
“LORD, save me!”
TheLORDis gracious and righteous;
our God is full of compassion.
TheLORDprotects the unwary;
when I was brought low, he saved me.
(Psalm 116:1-6, NIV)*
