Return to your rest, my soul

I love the Lord, because He has heard
My voice and my supplications.
 Because He has inclined His ear to me,
Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.

 The pains of death surrounded me,
And the pangs of Sheol laid hold of me;
I found trouble and sorrow.
 Then I called upon the name of the Lord:
“O Lord, I implore You, deliver my soul!”

 Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
Yes, our God is merciful.
 The Lord preserves the simple;
I was brought low, and He saved me.
 Return to your rest, O my soul,
For the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.

(Psalm 116)
