Psalm 61
New American Standard Bible►► 

Confidence in God’s Protection.

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

1Hear my cry, God;

Give Your attention to my prayer.

2From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint;

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

3For You have been a refuge for me,

A tower of strength against the enemy.

4Let me [a]dwell in Your tent forever;

Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Selah

5For You have heard my vows, God;

You have given me the inheritance of those who fear Your name.

6You will [b]prolong the king’s [c]life;

His years will be like generations.

7He will [d]sit enthroned before God forever;

Appoint faithfulness and truth that they may watch over him.

8So I will sing praise to Your name forever,

That I may pay my vows day by day.

[a] 4 Or sojourn
[b] 6 Lit add days to
[c] 6 Lit days
[d] 7 Or remain before
