When I felt secure, I said,
    “I will never be shaken.”(A)
Lord, when you favored me,
    you made my royal mountain[a] stand firm;
but when you hid your face,(B)
    I was dismayed.

To you, Lord, I called;
    to the Lord I cried for mercy:
“What is gained if I am silenced,
    if I go down to the pit?(C)
Will the dust praise you?
    Will it proclaim your faithfulness?(D)
10 Hear,(E) Lord, and be merciful to me;(F)
    Lord, be my help.(G)

11 You turned my wailing(H) into dancing;(I)
    you removed my sackcloth(J) and clothed me with joy,(K)
12 that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
    Lord my God, I will praise(L) you forever.(M)
