Psalm 61

For the choir director; on a stringed instrument; by David.

Listen to my cry for help, O Elohim.
    Pay attention to my prayer.
From the ends of the earth, I call to you
    when I begin to lose heart.
    Lead me to the rock that is high above me.
You have been my Machseh,
    a Migdal-Oz against the enemy.
I would like to be a guest in your tent forever
    and to take refuge under the protection of your wings. Selah
        O Elohim, you have heard my vows.
            You have given me the inheritance
                that belongs to those who fear your name.
Add days upon days to the life of the king.
    May his years endure throughout every generation.
May he sit enthroned in the presence of Elohim forever.
    May mercy and truth protect him.
Then I will make music to praise your name forever,
    as I keep my vows day after day.
