Psalm 61

1 Of David.
Hear, O God, my cry for help. Do pay attention to my prayer.

2 From the ends of the earth I will cry out to you When my heart is in despair. Lead me onto a rock that is higher than I am.

3 For you are my refuge, A strong tower that protects me from the enemy.

4 I will be a guest in your tent forever; I will take refuge in the shelter of your wings.

5 For you, O God, have heard my vows. You have given me the inheritance belonging to those who fear your name.

6 You will add days to the life of the king, And his years will be from generation to generation.

7 He will sit enthroned forever before God; Grant him loyal love and faithfulness, so that these may safeguard him.

8 Then I will sing praises to your name forever As I pay my vows day after day.
