To you, O Lord, I cry,
    and (A)to the Lord I plead for mercy:
“What profit is there in my death,[a]
    if I go down to the pit?[b]
Will (B)the dust praise you?
    Will it tell of your faithfulness?
10 (C)Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me!
    O Lord, be my helper!”

11 You have turned for me my mourning into (D)dancing;
    you have loosed my sackcloth
    and clothed me with gladness,
12 that my (E)glory may sing your praise and not be silent.
    O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever!
