The Lord my helper
A Psalm and Song Deut. 20:5at the dedication of the house of David.
I will extol thee, O Lord; for thou hast Ps. 28:9lifted me up,
And hast not made my foes to Ps. 25:2rejoice over me.
O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
O Lord, Ps. 86:13thou hast brought up my soul from the grave:
Thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his,
And give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
For Ps. 103:9his anger endureth but a moment; Ps. 63:3in his favour is life:
Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
And in my prosperity I said,
I shall never be moved.
Lord, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong:
Ps. 104:29Thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
I cried to thee, O Lord;
And unto the Lord I made supplication.
What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit?
Ps. 6:5Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me:
Lord, be thou my helper.
Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing:
Thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
To the end that Ps. 57:8my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
My times are in thy hand
