Psalm 61Lexham English Bible (LEB)
Confidence in God’s Protection
For the music director, upon stringed instruments. Of David.
61 Hear, O God, my cry;
attend to my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth I call to you
when my heart grows faint.
You will lead me to a rock that is higher than I.
3 For you have been my refuge,
a strong tower from the enemy.
4 Let me reside in your tent forever.
Let me take refuge under the covering of your wings. Selah
5 For you, O God, you have heard my vows.
You have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 You will add days to the days of the king,
his years like those of many generations.
7 May he live forever in the presence of God.
Appoint loyal love and faithfulness to preserve him.
8 So I will sing the praise of your name forever,
that I may fulfill my vows daily.
