Psalms 61
For the music leader, with stringed instruments. Of David.
1God, listen to my cry;
pay attention to my prayer!
2When 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
3because you have been my refuge,
a tower of strength in the face of the enemy.
4Please let me live in your tent forever!
Please let me take refuge
in the shelter of your wings! Selah
5Because you, God, have heard my promises;
you’ve given me#Heb lacks me. the same possession
as those who honor your name.
6Add days to the king’s life!
Let his years extend for many generations!
7Let him be enthroned forever before God!
Make it so love and faithfulness watch over him!
8Then I will sing praises to your name forever,
and I will do what I promised every single day.
