1I have loved, because the Lord will hear the voice of my prayer.1I have loved, because the Lord will hear the voice of my prayer.
2Because he hath inclined his ear unto me: and in my days I will call upon him.
3The sorrows of death have encompassed me: and the perils of hell have found me. I met with trouble and sorrow:
4and I called upon the name of the Lord. O Lord, deliver my soul.
5The Lord is merciful and just, and our God sheweth mercy.
6The Lord is the keeper of little ones: I was little and he delivered me.
7Turn, O my soul, into thy rest: for the Lord hath been bountiful to thee.
8For he hath delivered my soul from death: my eyes from tears, my feet from falling.
9I will please the Lord in the land of the living.
10I have believed, therefore have I spoken; but I have been humbled exceedingly.
11I said in my excess: Every man is a liar.
12What shall I render to the Lord, for all the things he hath rendered unto me?
13I will take the chalice of salvation; and I will call upon the name of the Lord.
14I will pay my vows to the Lord before all his people:
15precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
16O Lord, for I am thy servant: I am thy servant, and the son of thy handmaid. Thou hast broken my bonds:
17I will sacrifice to thee the sacrifice of praise, and I will call upon the name of the Lord.
18I will pay my vows to the Lord in the sight of all his people:
19in the courts of the house of the Lord, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem.
