Psalm 61


Lead Me to the Rock



 TO THE CHOIRMASTER: WITH STRINGED INSTRUMENTS. OF DAVID. 


      1 Hear my cry, O God, 

      listen to my prayer; 

      2 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, 

      3 for you have been my refuge, 

      a strong tower against the enemy. 


      4 Let me dwell in your tent forever! 

      Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah 

      5 For you, O God, have heard my vows; 

      you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name. 


      6 Prolong the life of the king; 

      may his years endure to all generations! 

      7 May he be enthroned forever before God; 

      appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him! 


      8 So will I ever sing praises to your name, 

      as I perform my vows day after day.
