A Prayer for Protection
For the director of music. With stringed instruments. Of David.
1God, hear my cry.
Listen to my prayer.
2I call to you from the ends of the earth.
I am afraid.
Carry me away to a high mountain.
3You have been my protection,
like a strong tower against my enemies.
4Let me live in your Holy Tent forever.
Protect me as a bird protects its young under its wings. Selah
5God, you have heard my promises.
You have given me the things that belong to those who fear you.
6Give the king a long life.
Let him live many years.
7Let him rule in the presence of God forever.
Protect him with your love and truth.
8Then I will praise your name forever.
And every day I will keep my promises.
