Thanksgiving for Deliverance from Death๐Ÿ•Š

116:1ย I love the Lord, because He has heard
My voice and my supplications.
2ย Because He has inclined His ear to me,
Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.

3ย The [a]pains of death surrounded me,
And the [b]pangs of Sheol [c]laid hold of me;
I found trouble and sorrow.
4ย Then I called upon the name of the Lord:
โ€œO Lord, I implore You, deliver my soul!โ€

5ย Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
Yes, our God is merciful.
6ย The Lord preserves the simple;
I was brought low, and He saved me.
7ย Return to your rest, O my soul,
For the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.

8ย For You have delivered my soul from death,
My eyes from tears,
And my feet from falling.
9ย I will walk before the Lord
In the land of the living.
10ย I believed, therefore I spoke,
โ€œI am greatly afflicted.โ€
11ย I said in my haste,
โ€œAll men are liars.โ€

12ย What shall I render to the Lord
For all His benefits toward me?
13ย I will take up the cup of salvation,
And call upon the name of the Lord.
14ย I will pay my vows to the Lord
Now in the presence of all His people.

15ย Precious in the sight of the Lord
Is the death of His saints.

16ย O Lord, truly I am Your servant;
I am Your servant, the son of Your maidservant;
You have loosed my bonds.
17ย I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving,
And will call upon the name of the Lord.

18ย I will pay my vows to the Lord
Now in the presence of all His people,
19ย In the courts of the Lordโ€™s house,
In the midst of you, O Jerusalem.

[d]Praise the Lord!๐Ÿ•Š
