Psalm 116

The LORD Has Heard My Voice

1 I love the LORD, for He has heard my voice—

my appeal for mercy.

2 Because He has inclined His ear to me,

I will call on Him as long as I live.

3 The ropes of death entangled me;

the anguish of Sheol overcame me;

I was confronted by trouble and sorrow.

4 Then I called on the name of the LORD:

“O LORD, deliver my soul!”

5 The LORD is gracious and righteous;

our God is full of compassion.

6 The LORD preserves the simplehearted;

I was helpless, and He saved me.

7 Return to your rest, O my soul,

for the LORD has been good to you.

8 For You have delivered my soul from death,

my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling.

9 I will walk before the LORD

in the land of the living.

10 I believed, therefore I said, a 

“I am greatly afflicted.”

11 In my alarm I said,

“All men are liars!”

12 How can I repay the LORD

for all His goodness to me?

13 I will lift the cup of salvation

and call on the name of the LORD.

14 I will fulfill 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 saints.

16 Truly, O LORD, I am Your servant;

I am Your servant, the son of Your maidservant;

You have broken my bonds.

17 I will offer to You a sacrifice of thanksgiving

and call on the name of the LORD.

18 I will fulfill my vows to the LORD

in the presence of all His people,

19 in the courts of the LORD’s house,

in your midst, O Jerusalem.

Hallelujah! b
