R.) I will walk in the presence of the Lord in the land of the living.
I love the Lord for he has heard the cry of my appeal; for he turned his ear to me in the day when I called him. (R.)
They surrounded me, the snares of death, with the anguish of the tomb; they caught me, sorrow and distress. I called on the Lord’s name. O Lord my God, deliver me! (R.)
How gracious is the Lord, and just; our God has compassion. The Lord protects the simple hearts; I was helpless so he saved me. (R.)
He has kept my soul from death, (my eyes from tears) and my feet from stumbling. I will walk in the presence of the Lord in the land of the living. (R.)
R.) Alleluia, alleluia!
Blessed are you, Father,
Lord of heaven and earth,
for revealing the mysteries of the kingdom
to mere children.
