Psalm 116

PART ONE

  1. I love you O Lord because you heard my voice;
    when I made my supplication.
  2. because you turned your ear to me;
    when I called upon your name.
  3. The cords of death entangled me,
    and the grip of Sheol laid hold on me;
    distress and anguish descended upon me.
  4. Then I called upon the name of the Lord;
    'Deliver me O Lord I beseech you.'
  5. Gracious is the Lord and righteous:
    truly our God is a God of compassion.
  6. The Lord preserves the simple-hearted:
    when I was brought low the Lord saved me.
  7. Be at rest once more O my soul
    for the Lord has treated you kindly.
  8. The Lord has saved me from death;
    and kept my eyes from tears
    and my feet from stumbling.
  9. so that I may walk in the presence of the Lord:
    in the land of the living.

PART TWO

  1. I kept my faith, even when I said,
    'I am in sore distress':
    in my haste I said, 'No one can be trusted.'
  2. How can I repay you O Lord:
    for all the good things you have done to me?
  3. I will take up the cup of salvation:
    and call on the name of the Lord.
  4. I will pay my vows to the Lord:
    in the presence of all God's people.
  5. Grievous in the sight of the Lord:
    is the death of a faithful servant.
  6. Lord I am your servant,
    the child of your maidservant:
    you have freed me from my bonds.
  7. I will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving:
    and call on the name of the Lord.
  8. I will pay my vows to the Lord:
    in the presence of all God's people.
  9. in the courts of the Lord's house:
    in your midst O Jerusalem.
    O praise the Lord.

Grace

Grace is usually said AFTER the meal.

Let us say grace.
Blessed are you LORD our God, master of the Universe
Who nourishes the whole world in goodness, with grace kindness and compassion.
He gives bread to all flesh, for his mercy endures forever.
And through his great goodness we have never lacked,
nor will we lack food for ever, for the sake of his great Name.
For he is God who nourishes and sustains all, and does good to all,
and prepares food for all his creatures, which he created.
Blessed are you Lord who nourishes all.
Amen.
