¶ I am well pleased, that the LORD hath heard the voice of my prayer. 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, the pains of hell gat hold upon me, I found trouble and heaviness. Then called I upon the name of the LORD: O LORD deliver my soul. Gracious is the LORD, and righteous, yea our God is merciful. The LORD preserveth the simple, I was brought down and he helped me. Turn again then unto thy rest, O my soul, for the LORD hath given thee thy desire. And why thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. I will walk before the LORD, in the land of the living.
¶ I believed, and therefore have I spoken, but I was sore troubled. I said in my haste: All men are liars. What reward shall I give unto the LORD, for all the benefits that he hath done unto me? I will receive the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. I will pay my vows in the presence of all his people, right dear in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. O LORD, I am thy servant, I am thy servant, and the son of thy handmaid, thou hast broken my bonds in sonder. I will offer to thee, the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD. I will pay my vows unto the LORD in the sight of all his people, in the courts of the LORD's house, even in the middest of thee, O Ierusalem. Praise the everlasting.
