A Psalme or song of the dedication of the house of Dauid.
1
I will magnifie thee, O Lorde: for thou hast exalted mee, and hast not made my foe to reioyce ouer me.
2
O Lorde my God, I cried vnto thee, and thou hast restored me.
3
O Lorde, thou hast brought vp my soule out of the graue: thou hast reuiued me from them that goe downe into the pit.
4
Sing praises vnto the Lord, ye his Saintes, and giue thankes before the remembrance of his Holinesse.
5
For he endureth but a while in his anger: but in his fauour is life: weeping may abide at euening, but ioy commeth in the morning.
6
And in my prosperitie I sayde, I shall neuer be moued.
7
For thou Lord of thy goodnes hadest made my mountaine to stande strong: but thou didest hide thy face, and I was troubled.
8
Then cried I vnto thee, O Lord, and praied to my Lord.
9
What profite is there in my blood, when I go downe to the pit?
shall the dust giue thankes vnto thee?
or shall it declare thy trueth?
10
Heare, O Lorde, and haue mercy vpon me: Lord, be thou mine helper.
11
Thou hast turned my mourning into ioy: thou hast loosed my sacke and girded mee with gladnesse.
12
Therefore shal my tongue praise thee and not cease: O Lorde my God, I will giue thankes vnto thee for euer.
