Psalm 61

1Hear my cry, O God,
   listen to my prayer;
2from the end of the earth I call to you
   when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock
   that is higher than I,
3for you have been my refuge,
   a strong tower against the enemy.

4Let me dwell in your tent forever!
   Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah
5For you, O God, have heard my vows;
   you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.

6Prolong the life of the king;
   may his years endure to all generations!
7May he be enthroned forever before God;
   appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!

8So will I ever sing praises to your name,
   as I perform my vows day after day.
