To the Director: A composition[a] by David for stringed instruments.
A Prayer for God’s Protection
61 God, hear my cry; pay attention to my prayer. 2 From the end of the earth I will cry to you whenever my heart is overwhelmed. Place me on the rock that’s too high for me. 3 For you have been a refuge for me, a tower of strength before the enemy. 4 Let me make my home in your tent forever; let me hide under the shelter of your wings. Interlude
5 For you, God, have heard my promises; you have assigned to me[b] the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Add day after day to the king’s life; may his years continue[c] for many generations. 7 May he be enthroned before God forever; Appoint your[d] gracious love and truth to guard him.
8 So I will sing songs to your name forever; I will fulfill my promises day by day.
