Psalm 61

1 Hear my loud crying, O God:
    and give heed to my prayer.
2 From the ends of the earth I call to you when my heart faints:
    O set me on the rock that is higher than I.
3 For you have been my refuge:
    and my strong tower against the enemy.
4 I will dwell in your tent for ever:
    and find shelter in the covering of your wings.
5 For you have heard my vows, O God:
    you have granted the desire of those that fear your name.
6 You will give the king long life:
    and his years shall endure through many generations.
7 He shall dwell before God for ever:
    loving-kindness and truth shall be his guard.
8 So will I ever sing praises to your name:
    while I daily perform my vows.
