Bay Psalm Book: Psalm 30

A Psalm and Song, at the dedication of the house of David.

1 JEHOVAH, I will thee extol,

for thou hast lift up me;

and over me thou hast not made

my foes joyful to be.

2 O Lord my God, to thee I cry’d

and thou hast made me whole.

3 Out of the grave, o Jehovah,

thou hast brought up my soul:

Thou mad’st me to live, I went not down

4 to pit. Sing to the Lord,

(ye his Saints) and give thanks when ye

his holiness record.

5 For but a moment in his wrath;

life in his love doth stray:

weeping may lodge with us a night

but joy at break of day.

6 I said in my prosperity,

I shall be moved never.

7 Lord by thy favour thou hast made

my mountain stand fast ever:

Thou hid’st thy face, I troubled was.

8 I unto thee did cry,

o Lord: also my humble suit

unto the Lord made I.

9 What gain is in my blood; when I

into the pit go down?

shall dust give glory unto thee?

shall it thy truth make known?

10 Do thou me o Jehovah, hear,

and on me mercy have:

Jehovah, o be thou to me

an helper me to save.

11 Thou into dancing for my sake

converted hast my sadness:

my sackcloth thou unloosed hast,

and girded me with gladness:

12 That sing to thee my glory may,

and may not silent be:

o Lord my God, I will give thanks

for evermore to thee.
