As the sun is a joy to those who seek its day, So my joy is the Lord; 2 Because he is my sun, And his rays roused me, And his light dispelled all the darkness from my face. 3 I obtained eyes by him, And saw his holy day: 4 Ears became mine, And I heard his truth. 5 The thought of knowledge became mine, And I delighted myself through him. 6 I forsook the way of error, And I went to him and received from him deliverance without grudging; 1 Or ‘received deliverance from him that is without envy’. 7 And according to his gift he gave to me, And according to his great beauty he made me. 8 I put on incorruption through his name, And I put off corruption by his grace. 9 Death was destroyed from before my face, And Sheol was brought to nothing at my word. 10 And immortal life rose up in the land of the Lord, And it became known to his faithful ones, And was given unsparingly to all those who trust in him. Hallelujah.
