You rescue me Lord,
you save me.
In my pain,
my anguish,
my worry,
then things holding me back,
holding me down.

I offer myself,
all I am,
can be
and will be,
to you,
in thanksgiving
to you

Psalm 116:1-4, 12-19 (CEV)

When the Lord Saves You from Death

116 I love you, Lord!
    You answered my prayers.
You paid attention to me,
    and so I will pray to you
    as long as I live.
Death attacked from all sides,
    and I was captured
    by its painful chains.
But when I was really hurting,
I prayed and said,
    please don’t let me die!”

12 What must I give you, Lord,
    for being so good to me?
13 I will pour out an offering
    of wine to you,
    and I will pray in your name
because you
    have saved me.
14 I will keep my promise to you
    when your people meet.
15 You are deeply concerned
    when one of your loyal people
    faces death.

16 I worship you, Lord,
    just as my mother did,
    and you have rescued me
    from the chains of death.
17 I will offer you a sacrifice
to show how grateful I am,
    and I will pray.
18 I will keep my promise to you
    when your people
19 gather
    at your temple
in Jerusalem.
    Shout praises to the Lord!
