Psalm 61Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Assurance of God’s Protection

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

61 Hear my cry, O God,
listen to my prayer;
from the end of the earth I call to thee,
    when my heart is faint.

Lead thou me
    to the rock that is higher than I;
for thou art my refuge,
    a strong tower against the enemy.

Let me dwell in thy tent for ever!
    Oh to be safe under the shelter of thy wings!Selah
For thou, O God, hast heard my vows,
    thou hast given me the heritage of those who fear thy name.

Prolong the life of the king;
    may his years endure to all generations!
May he be enthroned for ever before God;
    bid steadfast love and faithfulness watch over him!

So will I ever sing praises to thy name,
    as I pay my vows day after day.
