Psalm 30

(from Day 6 Morning Prayer)

Exaltabo te, Domine

  1. I WILL magnify thee, O Lord, for thou hast set me up: and not made my foes to triumph over me.
  2. O Lord my God, I cried unto thee: and thou hast healed me.
  3. Thou, Lord, hast brought my soul out of hell: thou hast kept my life from them that go down to the pit.
  4. Sing praises unto the Lord, O ye saints of his: and give thanks unto him for a remembrance of his holiness.
  5. For his wrath endureth but the twinkling of an eye, and in his pleasure is life: heaviness may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
  6. And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be removed: thou, Lord, of thy goodness hast made my hill so strong.
  7. Thou didst turn thy face from me: and I was troubled.
  8. Then cried I unto thee, O Lord: and gat me to my Lord right humbly.
  9. What profit is there in my blood: when I go down to the pit?
  10. Shall the dust give thanks unto thee: or shall it declare thy truth?
  11. Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me: Lord, be thou my helper.
  12. Thou hast turned my heaviness into joy: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness.
  13. Therefore shall every good man sing of thy praise without ceasing: O my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
