Psalm 61

Psalm 61

To the chief Musician upon Neginah, A Psalm of David.
1Hear my cry, O God;
Attend unto my prayer.
2From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee,
When my heart is overwhelmed:
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
4I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever:
I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
5For thou, O God, hast heard my vows:
Thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.
6Thou wilt prolong the king's life:
And his years as many generations.
7He shall abide before God for ever:
O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him.
8So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever,
That I may daily perform my vows.
