I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.
The chords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came upon me;
I was overcome by trouble and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the Lord O lord save me!
The lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.
The lord protects the simple-hearted, when I was in great need, he saved me.
Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the lord has been good to you.
For you, O lord have delivered my soul from death
The words of this Psalm 116 sum up my experience at the age of nineteen. By His mercy He has kept me so far, by His grace I seek to do His will and trust Him for all that's to come.
What a Saviour.
