1To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. Of David. Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer;2from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I,3for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.4Let me dwell in your tent forever! Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings!5For you, O God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.6Prolong the life of the king; may his years endure to all generations!7May he be enthroned forever before God; appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!8So will I ever sing praises to your name, as I perform my vows day after day.
