Psalm 61

1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer!
2 In despair and far from home I call to you! Take me to a safe refuge,
3 for you are my protector, my strong defense against my enemies.
4 Let me live in your sanctuary all my life; let me find safety under your wings.
5 You have heard my promises, O God, and you have given me what belongs to those who honor you.
6 Add many years to the king's life; let him live on and on!
7 May he rule forever in your presence, O God; protect him with your constant love and faithfulness.
8 So I will always sing praises to you, as I offer you daily what I have promised.
