|[A Psalm of David. A Song at the dedication of the Temple.]||Thanksgiving. Psalm 30(v29)|
|I will extol thee, O LORD, for thou hast drawn me up, |
and hast not let my foes rejoice over me.
|O LORD my God, I cried to thee for help, |
and thou hast healed me.
|O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from Sheol, |
restored me to life from among those gone down to the Pit.
|Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints, |
and give thanks to his holy name.
|For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. |
Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.
|As for me, I said in my prosperity, |
"I shall never be moved."
|By thy favor, O LORD, thou hadst established me as a strong mountain; |
thou didst hide thy face, I was dismayed.
|To thee, O LORD, I cried; |
and to the LORD I made supplication:
|"What profit is there in my death, |
if I go down to the Pit?
Will the dust praise thee?
Will it tell of thy faithfulness?
|Hear, O LORD, and be gracious to me! |
O LORD, be thou my helper!"
|Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing; |
thou hast loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness,
|that my soul may praise thee and not be silent. |
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to thee for ever.
