Psalm 61

For the music leader, with stringed instruments. Of David.

1 God, listen to my cry; pay attention to my prayer!
2 When my heart is weak, I cry out to you from the very ends of the earth. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I am
3 because you have been my refuge, a tower of strength in the face of the enemy.
4 Please let me live in your tent forever! Please let me take refuge in the shelter of your wings! Selah
5 Because you, God, have heard my promises; you've given me the same possession as those who honor your name.
6 Add days to the king's life! Let his years extend for many generations!
7 Let him be enthroned forever before God! Make it so love and faithfulness watch over him!
8 Then I will sing praises to your name forever, and I will do what I promised every single day.
