|<< Psalm 61 >>|
GOD'S WORD ® Translation
[For the choir director; on a stringed instrument; by David.] Listen to my cry for help, O God. Pay attention to my prayer.
2From the ends of the earth, I call to you when I begin to lose heart. Lead me to the rock that is high above me.
3You have been my refuge, a tower of strength against the enemy.
4I would like to be a guest in your tent forever and to take refuge under the protection of your wings. [Selah]
5O God, you have heard my vows. You have given me the inheritance that belongs to those who fear your name.
6Add days upon days to the life of the king. May his years endure throughout every generation.
7May he sit enthroned in the presence of God forever. May mercy and truth protect him.
8Then I will make music to praise your name forever, as I keep my vows day after day.
