Psalm 116 & 117

Psalm 116:1–4

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!”

Psalm 117:1–2

Leader: 1 Praise the Lord, all you nations; 
  extol him, all you peoples.

  and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. 
  Praise the Lord!
