Confidence in God's Protection
61 1 To the Overseer, on stringed instruments.—By David. Hear, O God, my loud cry, attend to my prayer. 2 From the end of the land unto Thee I call, In the feebleness of my heart, Into a rock higher than I Thou dost lead me. 3 For Thou hast been a refuge for me, A tower of strength because of the enemy. 4 I sojourn in Thy tent to the ages, I trust in the secret place of Thy wings. Selah.
5 For Thou, O God, hast hearkened to my vows, Thou hast appointed the inheritance Of those fearing Thy name. 6 Days to the days of the king Thou addest, His years as generation and generation. 7 He dwelleth to the age before God, Kindness and truth appoint—they keep him. 8 So do I praise Thy name for ever, When I pay my vows day by day!
