(A psalm by David for the music leader. Use with stringed instruments.) Under the Protection of God 61 1Please listen, God, and answer my prayer! 2I feel hopeless, and I cry out to you from a faraway land. Lead me to the mighty rock[T] high above me. 3You are a strong tower, where I am safe from my enemies. 4Let me live with you forever and find protection under your wings, my God. 5You heard my promises, and you have blessed me, just as you bless everyone who worships you. 6Let the king have a long and healthy life. 7May he always rule with you, God, at his side; may your love and loyalty watch over him. 8I will sing your praises forever, God, and will always keep my promises.
