Joy Comes in the Morning

Psalm 30

A psalm, a song for the dedication of the Temple, of David.
I will exalt You, Adonai,
for You have lifted me up,
and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
Adonai my God, I cried to You for help,
and You healed me.
Adonai, You brought my soul up from Sheol.
You kept me alive, so I would not go down to the Pit.
Sing praise to Adonai, His faithful ones,
and praise His holy name.
For His anger lasts for only a moment,
    His favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may stay for the night,
    but joy comes in the morning.
When I felt secure, I said:
“I will never be shaken.”
Adonai, in Your favor
You made my mountain stand strong.
When You hid Your face,
I was terrified.
To You, Adonai, I called,
and to my Lord I made my plea:
10 “What gain is there in my blood,
    in my going down to the Pit?
    Will the dust praise You?
    Will it declare Your truth?
11 Hear, Adonai, and be gracious to me.
    Adonai, be my help.”

12 You turned my mourning into dancing.
You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.
13 So my glory will sing to You and not be silent.
Adonai my God, I will praise You forever.
