Confidence in God's Protection
To the chief Musician upon Neg´inah, 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.
