Psalm 61

To the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. [A Psalm] of David.

Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer.

From the end of the earth will I cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed and fainting; lead me to the rock that is higher than I [yes, a rock that is too high for me].

For You have been a shelter and a refuge for me, a strong tower against the adversary.

I will dwell in Your tabernacle forever; let me find refuge and trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

For You, O God, have heard my vows; You have given me the heritage of those who fear, revere, and honor Your name.

May You prolong the [true] [a]King’s life [adding days upon days], and may His years be to the last generation [of this world and the generations of the world to come].

May He sit enthroned forever before [the face of] God; O ordain that loving-kindness and faithfulness may watch over Him!

So will I sing praise to Your name forever, paying my vows day by day.
