Psalms 116 & 117
Leader: 1 I love the Lord, for he heard my voice;
he heard my cry for mercy.
ALL: 2 Because he turned his ear to me,
I will call on him as long as I live.
Leader: 3 The cords of death entangled me,
the anguish of the grave came over me;
I was overcome by distress and sorrow.
ALL: 4 Then I called on the name of the Lord:
“Lord, save me!”
Leader: 1 Praise the Lord, all you nations;
extol him, all you peoples.
ALL: 2 For great is his love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord!
