Confidence in God’s Protection.

For the music director; on a stringed instrument. A Psalm of David.

61 (A)Hear my cry, God;
(B)Give Your attention to my prayer.
From the (C)end of the earth I call to You when my heart is (D)faint;
Lead me to (E)the rock that is higher than I.
For You have been a (F)refuge for me,
A (G)tower of strength against the enemy.
Let me [a](H)dwell in Your tent forever;
Let me (I)take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Selah

For You have heard my (J)vows, God;
You have given me the inheritance of those who (K)fear Your name.
You will [b](L)prolong the king’s [c]life;
His years will be like generations.
He will [d]sit enthroned (M)before God forever;
Appoint (N)faithfulness and truth that they may watch over him.
So I will (O)sing praise to Your name forever,
That I may (P)pay my vows day by day.
