Psalms - Chapter 61

1

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


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.
