Psalm 61New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Prayer of the King in Time of Danger
1 For the leader; with stringed instruments. Of David.
2 Hear my cry, O God,
listen to my prayer!
3 From the ends of the earth I call;
my heart grows faint.
Raise me up, set me on a rock,
4 for you are my refuge,
a tower of strength against the foe.
5 Let me dwell in your tent forever,
take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
6 For you, O God, have heard my vows,
you have granted me the heritage of those who revere your name.
7 Add days to the life of the king;
may his years be as from generation to generation;
8 May he reign before God forever;
send your love and fidelity to preserve him—
9 I will duly sing to your name forever,
fulfill my vows day after day.
