Psalms 61 - NIV

[a]For the director of music. With stringed instruments. Of David.


Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.


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.


I long to dwell in your tent forever
and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.[b]

5 For you, God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.


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.


Then I will ever sing in praise of your name
and fulfill my vows day after day.
