61:1 For the Leader; with string-music. A Psalm of David.
61:2 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
61:3 From the end of the earth will I call unto Thee, when my heart fainteth; lead me to a rock that is too high for me.
61:4 For Thou hast been a refuge for me, a tower of strength in the face of the enemy.
61:5 I will dwell in Thy Tent for ever; I will take refuge in the covert of Thy wings. Selah
61:6 For Thou, O God, hast heard my vows; Thou hast granted the heritage of those that fear Thy name.
61:7 Mayest Thou add days unto the king's days! May his years be as many generations!
61:8 May he be enthroned before God for ever! Appoint mercy and truth, that they may preserve him.
61:9 So will I sing praise unto Thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
