1 I will magnify thee, O Lord: thou hast exalted
me, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
2 O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou
hast restored me.
3 O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul out of
the grave: thou hast revived me from them that go
down into the pit.
4 Sing praises unto the Lord, ye his Saints, and give
thanks before the remembrance of his Holiness.
5 For he endureth but a while in his anger: but in
his favor is life: weeping may abide at evening, but
joy cometh in the morning.
6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be
7 For thou Lord of thy goodness hadst made my
mountain to stand strong: but thou didst hide thy
face, and I was troubled.
8 Then cried I unto thee, O Lord, and prayed to
9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go
down to the pit! shall the dust give thanks unto
thee? or shall it declare thy truth?
10 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me: Lord,
be thou mine helper.
11 Thou hast turned my mourning into joy: thou
hast loosed my sack, and girded me with gladness.
12 Therefore shall my tongue praise thee and not
cease: O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee
