Psalm 61:1-8

For the Chief Musician; on a stringed instrument. A Psalm of David. 61  Hear my cry, O God; Attend unto my prayer. 2  From the end of the earth will I call unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 3  For thou hast been a refuge for me, A strong tower from the enemy. 4  I will dwell in thy tabernacle for ever: I will take refuge in the covert of thy wings. Selah 5  For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: Thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name. 6  Thou wilt prolong the king’s life; His years shall be as many generations. 7  He shall abide before God for ever: Oh prepare lovingkindness and truth, that they may preserve him. 8  So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, That I may daily perform my vows.
