Psalm 61:1-8

(Of the Director; with, string accompaniment; of David’s.) 61  Hear my appeal, God,listen to my prayer. 2  From the earth’s end to you I call when my heart is fainting away;you will set me on a rock too lofty for me to climb, 3  Because you have been a refuge to me,a tower of shelter before an enemy. 4  I will find a home in your tent eternally,will take refuge under the screen of your wings. (Selah) 5  For you, God, have heard my vows,have granted the request of those who fear your name. 6  You will add time to the king’s time;his years shall be like generation upon generation; 7  He shall be enthroned forever before God;set friendship and loyalty to keep him. 8  Thus I will make music to your name for aye,paying my vows day by day.
