Psalms 61

Psalm 61

Security in God

For the choir director: on stringed instruments. Of David.

1God, hear my cry;

pay attention to my prayer.

2I call to you from the ends of the earth

when my heart is without strength.

Lead me to a rock that is high above me,

3for you have been a refuge for me,

a strong tower in the face of the enemy.

4I will dwell in your tent forever

and take refuge under the shelter of your wings.Selah

5God, you have heard my vows;

you have given a heritage

to those who fear your name.

6Add days to the king’s life;

may his years span many generations.

7May he sit enthroned before God forever.

Appoint faithful love and truth to guard him.

8Then I will continually sing of your name,

fulfilling my vows day by day.
