He hears my voice and my prayer for mercy

1  I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayer for mercy. 2  Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath! 3  Death wrapped its ropes around me; the terrors of the grave overtook me. I saw only trouble and sorrow. 4  Then I called on the name of the Lord : “Please, Lord, save me!” 5  How kind the Lord is! How good he is! So merciful, this God of ours! 6  The Lord protects those of childlike faith; I was facing death, and he saved me. 7  Let my soul be at rest again, for the Lord has been good to me. 8  He has saved me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. 9  And so I walk in the Lord ‘s presence as I live here on earth!

10  I believed in you, so I said, “I am deeply troubled, Lord .” 11  In my anxiety I cried out to you, “These people are all liars!” 12  What can I offer the Lord for all he has done for me? 13  I will lift up the cup of salvation and praise the Lord ‘s name for saving me. 14  I will keep my promises to the Lord in the presence of all his people. 15  The Lord cares deeply when his loved ones die. 16  O Lord, I am your servant; yes, I am your servant, born into your household; you have freed me from my chains. 17  I will offer you a sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of the Lord . 18  I will fulfill my vows to the Lord in the presence of all his people- 19  in the house of the Lord in the heart of Jerusalem. Praise the Lord !
