Psalm 61 Revised Standard Version

Confidence in God's Protection

61 1  To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David. Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; 2  from the end of the earth I call to thee, when my heart is faint. Lead thou me to the rock that is higher than I; 3  for thou art my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy. 4  Let me dwell in thy tent for ever! Oh to be safe under the shelter of thy wings! [Selah]

5  For thou, O God, hast heard my vows, thou hast given me the heritage of those who fear thy name. 6  Prolong the life of the king; may his years endure to all generations! 7  May he be enthroned for ever before God; bid steadfast love and faithfulness watch over him! 8  So will I ever sing praises to thy name, as I pay my vows day after day.
