Call – Psalm 30:1-3 (NLT)

              I will exalt you, Lord, for you rescued me.
            You refused to let my enemies triumph over me.
            O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you restored my health.
            You brought me up from the grave, O Lord.
            You kept me from falling into the pit of death.

Call – Psalm 30:7b-10 (NLT)

Then you turned away from me, and I was shattered.
I cried out to you, O Lord. I begged the Lord for mercy, saying,
“What will you gain if I die, if I sink into the grave?
Can my dust praise you? Can it tell of your faithfulness?
Hear me, Lord, and have mercy on me. Help me, O Lord.”

Response – Divine Reply

Call – Psalm 30:11-12 (NLT)

You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing.
You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,
that I might sing praises to you and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!                

Response – Oh, Give Thanks
