Dilexi, quoniam.

My delight is | in the LORD;

* because he hath heard the | voice of my prayer;

2 Because he hath inclined his ear | unto me;

* therefore will I call upon him as | long as I live.

3 The snares of death compassed me | round about,

* and the pains of | hell gat hold upon me.

4 I found trouble and heaviness; then called I upon the Name | of the LORD;

* O LORD, I beseech thee, de- | -liver my soul.

5 Gracious is the | LORD, and righteous;

* yea, our | God is merciful.

6 The LORD pre- | -serveth• the simple:

* I was in misery, | and he helped me.

7 Turn again then unto thy rest, | O my soul;

* for the LORD | hath rewarded thee.

8 And why? thou hast delivered my | soul from death,

* mine eyes from tears, | and my feet from falling.

9 I will walk be- | -fore the LORD

* in the | land of the living.

10 I believed, and therefore will I speak; but I was | sore troubled:

* I said in my haste, | All men are liars.

11 What reward shall I give | unto• the LORD

* for all the benefits that he hath | done unto me?

12 I will receive the cup | of salvation,

* and call upon the | Name of the LORD.

13 I will pay my vows now in the presence of | all his people:

* right dear in the sight of the LORD is the | death of his saints.

14 Behold, O LORD, how that | I am• thy servant;

* I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid; thou hast | broken• my bonds in sunder.

15 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of | thanksgiving,

* and will call upon the | Name of the LORD.

16 I will pay my vows unto the LORD, in the sight of | all his people,

* in the courts of the LORD's house; even in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. | Praise the LORD.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
