Psalm of the Day Bread of Life Psalm 30
1I will extol you, O LORD, for you have | drawn me up*
and have not let my foes rejoice | over me.
2O LORD my God, I cried to | you for help,*
and you have | healed me.
3O LORD, you have brought up my soul | from Sheol;*
you restored me to life from among those who go down | to the pit.
4Sing praises to the LORD, O | you his saints,*
and give thanks to his | holy name.
5For 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.
6As for me, I said in my pros- | perity,*
“I shall nev- | er be moved.”
7By your favor, O LORD, you made my mountain | stand strong;*
you hid your face; I | was dismayed.
8To 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?
10Hear, O LORD, and be merci- | ful to me!*
O LORD, be my | helper!”
11You have turned for me my mourning into | dancing;*
you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with | gladness,
12that my glory may sing your praise and not be | silent.*
O LORD my God, I will give thanks to you for- | ever!
