24th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B: Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 116:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 8-9

I will walk before the Lord, in the land of the living.

Verse 1:

I love the LORD because he has heard
   my voice in supplication,
Because he has inclined his ear to me
   the day I called.

Verse 2:

The cords of death encompassed me;
   the snares of the netherworld seized upon me;
   I fell into distress and sorrow,
and I called upon the name of the LORD,
   “O LORD, save my life!”

Verse 3:

Gracious is the LORD and just;
   yes, our God is merciful.
The LORD keeps the little ones;
   I was brought low, and he saved me.

Verse 4:

For he has freed my soul from death,
   my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling.
I shall walk before the LORD
   in the land of the living.
