Psalm 116
Douay-Rheims Bible

He Listens to My Voice

1I have loved, because the Lord will hear the voice of my prayer.

2Because he hath inclined his ear unto me: and in my days I will call upon him.

3The sorrows of death have encompassed me: and the perils of hell have found me. I met with trouble and sorrow:

4and I called upon the name of the Lord. O Lord, deliver my soul.

5The Lord is merciful and just, and our God sheweth mercy.

6The Lord is the keeper of little ones: I was little and he delivered me.

7Turn, O my soul, into thy rest: for the Lord hath been bountiful to thee.

8For he hath delivered my soul from death: my eyes from tears, my feet from falling.

9I will please the Lord in the land of the living.

10I have believed, therefore have I spoken; but I have been humbled exceedingly.

11I said in my excess: Every man is a liar.

12What shall I render to the Lord, for all the things he hath rendered unto me?

13I will take the chalice of salvation; and I will call upon the name of the Lord.

14I will pay my vows to the Lord before all his people:

15precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

16O Lord, for I am thy servant: I am thy servant, and the son of thy handmaid. Thou hast broken my bonds:

17I will sacrifice to thee the sacrifice of praise, and I will call upon the name of the Lord.

18I will pay my vows to the Lord in the sight of all his people:

19in the courts of the house of the Lord, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem.
