Lessons Bread of Life 25 April 2020
1I love the LORD, because | he has heard*
my voice and my pleas for | mercy.
2Because he inclined his | ear to me,*
therefore I will call on him as long | as I live.
3The snares of death encompassed me;
the pangs of Sheol laid | hold on me;*
I suffered distress and | anguish.
4Then I called on the name | of the LORD:*
“O LORD, I pray, deliv- | er my soul!”
5Gracious is the LORD, and | righteous;*
our God is | merciful.
6The LORD preserves the | simple;*
when I was brought low, he | saved me.
7Return, O my soul, | to your rest;*
for the LORD has dealt bountifully | with you.
8For you have delivered my | soul from death,*
my eyes from tears,
my feet from | stumbling;
9I will walk be- | fore the LORD*
in the land of the | living.
10I believed, even | when I spoke,*
“I am greatly af- | flicted”;
11I said in | my alarm,*
“All mankind are | liars.”
12What shall I render | to the LORD*
for all his bene- | fits to me?
13I will lift up the cup of sal- | vation*
and call on the name | of the LORD,
14I will pay my vows | to the LORD*
in the presence of all his | people.
