Psalm of the Day – April 21, 2020 (Psalm 116)

1   I love the LORD, because he has heard 
          my voice and my supplications. 
2   Because he inclined his ear to me, 
          therefore I will call on him as long as I live. 
3   The snares of death encompassed me; 
          the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me; 
          I suffered distress and anguish. 
4   Then I called on the name of the LORD: 
          “O LORD, I pray, save my life!”

5   Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; 
          our God is merciful. 
6   The LORD protects the simple; 
          when I was brought low, he saved me. 
7   Return, O my soul, to your rest, 
          for the LORD has dealt bountifully with you.

8   For you have delivered my soul from death, 
          my eyes from tears, 
          my feet from stumbling. 
9   I walk before the LORD 
          in the land of the living. 
10  I kept my faith, even when I said, 
          “I am greatly afflicted”; 
11  I said in my consternation, 
          “Everyone is a liar.”

12  What shall I return to the LORD 
          for all his bounty to me? 
13   I will lift up the cup of salvation 
          and call on the name of the LORD, 
14  I will pay my vows to the LORD 
          in the presence of all his people. 
15  Precious in the sight of the LORD 
          is the death of his faithful ones. 
16  O LORD, I am your servant; 
          I am your servant, the child of your serving girl. 
          You have loosed my bonds. 
17  I will offer to you a thanksgiving sacrifice 
          and call on the name of the LORD. 
18  I will pay my vows to the LORD 
          in the presence of all his people, 
19  in the courts of the house of the LORD, 
          in your midst, O Jerusalem. 
     Praise the LORD!
