"Extraordinary measure of grace God provided."


Psalm 30 NRSV


I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up, and did not let my foes rejoice over me.


O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.


O Lord, you brought up my soul from Sheol, restored me to life from among those gone down to the Pit.


Sing praises to the Lord, O you his faithful ones, and give thanks to his holy name.


For his anger is but for a moment; his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may linger for the night, but joy comes with the morning.


As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.”


By your favor, O Lord, you had established me as a strong mountain; you hid your face; I was dismayed.


To you, O Lord, I cried, and to the Lord I made supplication:


“What profit is there in my death, if I go down to the Pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it tell of your faithfulness?


Hear, O Lord, and be gracious to me! O Lord, be my helper!”


You have turned my mourning into dancing; you have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,


so that my soul may praise you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever.
