Psalm 116 “Gratitude”


Sermon Bible Passage

I love the Lord, because he has heard     my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me,     therefore I will call on him as long as I live. The snares of death encompassed me;     the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me;     I suffered distress and anguish. Then I called on the name of the Lord:     “O Lord, I pray, deliver my soul!”

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

For you have delivered my soul from death,     my eyes from tears,     my feet from stumbling; I will walk before the Lord     in the land of the living.

I believed, even when I spoke:     “I am greatly afflicted”; I said in my alarm,     “All mankind are liars.”

What shall I render to the Lord     for all his benefits to me? I will lift up the cup of salvation     and call on the name of the Lord, I will pay my vows to the Lord     in the presence of all his people.

Precious in the sight of the Lord     is the death of his saints. Lord, I am your servant;     I am your servant, the son of your maidservant.     You have loosed my bonds. I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving     and call on the name of the Lord. I will pay my vows to the Lord     in the presence of all his people, in the courts of the house of the Lord,     in your midst, O Jerusalem. Praise the Lord!
