You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing

1  I will exalt you, Lord, for you rescued me. You refused to let my enemies triumph over me. 2  O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you restored my health. 3  You brought me up from the grave, O Lord . You kept me from falling into the pit of death. 4  Sing to the Lord, all you godly ones! Praise his holy name. 5  For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.

6  When I was prosperous, I said, “Nothing can stop me now!” 7  Your favor, O Lord, made me as secure as a mountain. Then you turned away from me, and I was shattered. 8  I cried out to you, O Lord . I begged the Lord for mercy, saying, 9  “What will you gain if I die, if I sink into the grave? Can my dust praise you? Can it tell of your faithfulness? 10  Hear me, Lord, and have mercy on me. Help me, O Lord .” 11  You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy, 12  that I might sing praises to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!
