Psalms 61

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. Of David.

1 Hear my cry, O God;
     listen to my prayer.
2 From the ends of the earth I call to you,
     I call as my heart grows faint;
     lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For you have been my refuge,
     a strong tower against the foe.
4 I long to dwell in your tent forever
     and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
5 For you have heard my vows, O God;
     you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Increase the days of the king's life,
     his years for many generations.
7 May he be enthroned in God's presence forever;
     appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8 Then will I ever sing praise to your name and fulfill my vows day after day.
