I am well pleased that the Lord hath heard the voice of my pray'r, that he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him, as long as I live.

The snares of death compassed me round about and the pains of hell gat hold upon me.
I have found trouble and heaviness and I did call upon the name of the Lord, O Lord I beseech Thee deliver my soul.
Gracious is the Lord and righteous, yea our God is merciful.

I have found trouble and heaviness and I did call upon the name of the Lord, O Lord I beseech Thee deliver my soul. Gracious is the Lord and righteous, yea, our God is merciful. The Lord preserveth the simple, when I was in misery he delivered me. For the Lord hath rewarded thee. Turn, turn, again then, turn again unto thy rest O my soul. For the Lord hath rewarded thee, he hath rewarded thee. For he hath deliver'd my soul, my soul from death, my feet from falling. I shall walk before the Lord in the land of the living For he hath deliver'd my soul, my soul from death, my feet from falling. I will pay my vows unto the Lord in the sight of his peo-ple In the courts of the Lord's house ev'n in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem, Hallelujah.
