1For the leader. With stringed instruments. By David:
2Hear my cry, God;
listen to my prayer.
3From 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.
4For you have been a refuge for me,
a tower of strength in the face of the foe.
5I will live in your tent forever
and find refuge in the shelter of your wings. (Selah)
6For you, God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
7Prolong the life of the king!
May his years go on for many generations.
8May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever!
Appoint grace and truth to preserve him!
9Then I will sing praise to your name forever,
as day after day I fulfill my vows.
