He Listens to My Voice

1I love the LORD, because he has heard my voice and my supplications. 2Because he has inclined his ear to me, therefore will I call on him as long as I live. 3The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell got hold on me: I found trouble and sorrow. 4Then called I on the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech you, deliver my soul. 5Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yes, our God is merciful. 6The LORD preserves the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me. 7Return to your rest, O my soul; for the LORD has dealt bountifully with you. 8For you have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. 9I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living. 10I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted: 11I said in my haste, All men are liars. 12What shall I render to the LORD for all his benefits toward me? 13I will take the cup of salvation, and call on the name of the LORD. 14I will pay my vows to the LORD now in the presence of all his people. 15Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. 16O LORD, truly I am your servant; I am your servant, and the son of your handmaid: you have loosed my bonds. 17I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call on the name of the LORD. 18I will pay my vows to the LORD now in the presence of all his people. 19In the courts of the LORD's house, in the middle of you, O Jerusalem. Praise you the LORD.
