Psalm 30


Joy Comes with the Morning



 A PSALM OF DAVID. A SONG AT THE DEDICATION OF THE TEMPLE. 


      1 I will extol you, O LORD, for you have drawn me up 

      and have not let my foes rejoice over me. 

      2 O LORD my God, I cried to you for help, 

      and you have healed me. 

      3 O LORD, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; 

      you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit. 


      4 Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints, 

      and give thanks to his holy name. 

      5 For his anger is but for a moment, 

      and his favor is for a lifetime. 

      Weeping may tarry for the night, 

      but joy comes with the morning. 


      6 As for me, I said in my prosperity, 

      “I shall never be moved.” 

      7 By your favor, O LORD, 

      you made my mountain stand strong; 

      you hid your face; 

      I was dismayed. 


      8 To you, O LORD, I cry, 

      and to the Lord I plead for mercy: 

      9 “What profit is there in my death, 

      if I go down to the pit? 

      Will the dust praise you? 

      Will it tell of your faithfulness? 

      10 Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me! 

      O LORD, be my helper!” 


      11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; 

      you have loosed my sackcloth 

      and clothed me with gladness, 

      12 that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. 

      O LORD my God, I will give thanks to you forever!
