1 Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. 

 2 From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

 3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.

 4 I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. Selah

 5 For you have heard my vows, O God; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.

 6 Increase the days of the king's life, his years for many generations.

 7 May he be enthroned in God's presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.

 8 Then will I ever sing praise to your name and fulfill my vows day after day. 

Psalm 61 (New International Version)
