Scripture Reading: Psalm 30:1-5, 11-12 GNT (Good News Translation)
1 I praise you, Lord, because you have saved me
and kept my enemies from gloating over me.
2 The I cried to you for help, O Lord my God,
and you healed me;
3 The you kept me from the grave.
I was on my way to the depths below,
but you restored my life.
4 Sing praise to the Lord,
all his faithful people!
Remember what the Holy One has done,
and give him thanks!
5 His anger lasts only a moment,
his goodness for a lifetime.
Tears may flow in the night,
but joy comes in the morning.
11 You have changed my sadness into a joyful dance;
you have taken away my sorrow
and surrounded me with joy.
12 So I will not be silent;
I will sing praise to you.
Lord, you are my God;
I will give you thanks forever.
