Psalm 61

1 For the leader. With stringed instruments. By David: Hear my cry, God; listen to my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth, with fainting heart, I call out to you. Set me down on a rock far above where I am now.
3 For you have been a refuge for me, a tower of strength in the face of the foe.
4 I will live in your tent forever and find refuge in the shelter of your wings. (Selah)
5 For you, God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Prolong the life of the king! May his years go on for many generations.
7 May he be enthroned in God's presence forever! Appoint grace and truth to preserve him!
8 Then I will sing praise to your name forever, as day after day I fulfill my vows.
