Psalm 61

Confidence in God’s Protection.

For the music director; on a stringed instrument. A Psalm of David.

61 Hear my cry, God;
Give Your attention to my prayer.
From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For You have been a refuge for me,
A tower of strength against the enemy.
Let me [a]dwell in Your tent forever;
Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Selah

For You have heard my vows, God;
You have given me the inheritance of those who fear Your name.
You will [b]prolong the king’s [c]life;
His years will be like generations.
He will [d]sit enthroned before God forever;
Appoint faithfulness and truth that they may watch over him.
So I will sing praise to Your name forever,
That I may pay my vows day by day.
