Psalm 61

Assurance of God’s Protection

To the leader: with stringed instruments. Of David.

1Hear 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 are my refuge,
    a strong tower against the enemy.

4Let me abide in your tent forever,
    find refuge under the shelter of your wings.Selah
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 I will always sing praises to your name,
    as I pay my vows day after day.
