|[To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David. ]||Prayer for Protection. Psalm 61(v60)|
|Hear my cry, O God, |
listen to my prayer;
|from the end of the earth I call to thee, when my heart is faint. |
Lead thou me to the rock that is higher than I;
|for thou art my refuge, |
a strong tower against the enemy.
|Let me dwell in thy tent for ever! |
Oh to be safe under the shelter of thy wings! [Selah]
|For thou, O God, hast heard my vows, |
thou hast given me the heritage of those who fear thy name.
|Prolong the life of the king; |
may his years endure to all generations!
|May he be enthroned for ever before God; |
bid steadfast love and faithfulness watch over him!
|So will I ever sing praises to thy name,|
as I pay my vows day after day.
