for you have drawn me up
and have not made my foes
to rejoice over me.
I cried out to you for help, and you have healed me.
You have kept me alive,
that I should not go down to the pit.
Yes, give thanks to his holy name.
His favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may last through the night,
but joy comes in the morning.
“I will never be shaken.”
you made my mountain stand strong;
but when you hid your face, I was dismayed.
Yes, to the Lord I sought favor:
if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
Will it declare your faithfulness?
O Yahweh, be my helper.”
You have unwrapped my sackcloth
and wrapped my waist with gladness,
O Yahweh my God, I will give thanks to you forever!
