Simply the Word

I will exalt you, LORD,
   for you lifted me out of the depths
   and did not let my enemies gloat over me. 
LORD my God, I called to you for help,
   and you healed me. 
You, LORD, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
   you spared me from going down to the pit.

Sing the praises of the LORD, you his faithful people;
   praise his holy name. 
For his anger lasts only a moment,
   but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
   but rejoicing comes in the morning.

When I felt secure, I said,
   “I will never be shaken.” 
LORD, when you favored me,
   you made my royal mountain stand firm;
but when you hid your face,
   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?
Will the dust praise you?
   Will it proclaim your faithfulness? 
Hear, LORD, and be merciful to me;
   LORD, be my help.”

You turned my wailing into dancing;
   you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
   LORD my God, I will praise you forever. 

I'm not sure if it was wimping out or not, but I read this Psalm and decided to just share the Word alone today.
