Psalm 61

Lead Me to the Rock

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. Of David.

Hear my cry, O God,
m listen to my prayer;
2 from the end of the earth I call to you
when my heart is n faint.
Lead me to o the rock
that is higher than I,
3 for you have been p my refuge,
a strong q tower against the enemy.

4 Let me r dwell in your tent forever!
Let me take refuge under s the shelter of your wings! Selah
5 For you, O God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.

6 t Prolong u the life of the king;
may his years endure to all generations!
7 May he be enthroned forever before God;
appoint v steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!

8 So will I ever sing praises to your name,
as I w perform my vows day after day.
