1 I worship you, O Lord,
for you have raised me up;
I cried to you for help,
and you restored my life.
You brought me back from death
and saved me from the grave.

2 Sing praises to the Lord,
all those who know his name:
for while his wrath is brief,
his favour knows no end.
Though tears may flow at night,
the morning brings new joy.

3 I said, 'I am so strong
I never shall be moved!'
But you, Lord, shook my life
my heart was in distress.
I cried for you to help
and pleaded for your grace:

4 My mourning you have turned
to dancing and to joy;
my sadness you dispelled
as gladness filled my soul.
And so I'll sing your praise,
my God, through all my days!
