Psalm 61

Lead Me to the Rock

1 Hear my cry, O God;
Attend to my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth I will cry to You,
When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For You have been a shelter for me,
a A strong tower from the enemy.

4 I will abide in Your 1 tabernacle forever;
b I will trust in 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 You will prolong the king's life,
His years as many generations.
7 He shall abide before God forever.
Oh, prepare mercy c and truth, which may 2 preserve him!

8 So I will sing praise to Your name forever,
That I may daily perform my vows.
