A Prayer for Protection

For the director of music. With stringed instruments. Of David.

61 God, hear my cry;
listen to my prayer.
I call to you from the ends of the earth
    when I am afraid.
    Carry me away to a high mountain.
You have been my protection,
    like a strong tower against my enemies.

Let me live in your Holy Tent forever.
    Let me find safety in the shelter of your wings. Selah

God, you have heard my promises.
    You have given me what belongs to those who fear you.

Give the king a long life;
    let him live many years.
Let him rule in the presence of God forever.
    Protect him with your love and truth.
Then I will praise your name forever,
    and every day I will keep my promises.
