Psalm 61

New International Version

1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.2 From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.4 I long to dwell in your tent for ever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.[1]5 For you, God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.6 Increase the days of the king’s life, his years for many generations.7 May he be enthroned in God’s presence for ever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.8 Then I will ever sing in praise of your name and fulfil my vows day after day.
