Psalm 30

I will exalt you, O Lord, 
for you lifted me out of the depths
and did not let my enemies gloat over me.

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

O Lord, you brought me up from the grave; 
you spared me from going down
into the pit.

Sing to the Lord, you saints of his;
praise his holy name.

For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime; 
weeping may remain for a night, 
but rejoicing comes in the morning.

When I  felt secure, I said,
"I will never be shaken."

O Lord, when you favored me,
you made my mountain stand firm;
but when you hid your face,
I was dismayed.

To you, O Lord, I called;
to the Lord I cried for mercy: 

"What gain is there in my destruction, 
in my going down into the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
Will it proclaim your faithfulness?

Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me;
O Lord, be my help."

You turned my wailing into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth 
and clothed me with joy, 
that my heart may sing to you and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give
thanks to you forever.

Psalm 30: 1-12 NIV
