Psalm 30:1–6, 11–13

I will exalt you, O Lord, because you have lifted me up   and have not let my enemies triumph over me.

O Lord my God, I cried out to you,   and you restored me to health.

You brought me up, O Lord, from the dead;   you restored my life as I was going down to the grave.

Sing to the Lord, you servants of his;   give thanks for the remembrance of his holiness.

For his wrath endures but the twinkling of an eye,   his favor for a lifetime.

Weeping may spend the night,   but joy comes in the morning.

Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me;   O Lord, be my helper.”

You have turned my wailing into dancing;   you have put off my sack-cloth and clothed me with joy.

Therefore my heart sings to you without ceasing;   O Lord my God, I will give you thanks for ever.
