Joy Comes with the Morning

30 A Psalm of David. A song at the dedication of rthe temple.

  I will sextol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up

and have not let my foes trejoice over me.

  O Lord my God, I ucried to you for help,

and you have vhealed me.

  O Lord, you have brought up my soul from wSheol;

you restored me to life from among those who xgo down to the pit.1

  Sing praises to the Lord, O you yhis saints,

and zgive thanks to his holy name.2

  aFor his anger is but for a moment,

and bhis favor is for a lifetime.3

cWeeping may tarry for the night,

but djoy comes with the morning.

  As for me, I said in my eprosperity,

“I shall never be fmoved.”

  By your favor, O Lord,

you made my gmountain stand strong;

you hhid your face;

I was idismayed.

  To you, O Lord, I cry,

and jto the Lord I plead for mercy:

  “What profit is there in my death,4

if I go down to the pit?5

Will kthe dust praise you?

Will it tell of your faithfulness?

  10  lHear, O Lord, and be merciful to me!

O Lord, be my helper!”

  11  You have turned for me my mourning into mdancing;

you have loosed my sackcloth

and clothed me with gladness,

  12  that my nglory may sing your praise and not be silent.

O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever!
