PSALM 61 Confidence in God’s Protection. For the choir director; on a stringed instrument. A Psalm of David. 61 1Hear my cry, O God; Give heed 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 [Q]against the enemy. 4Let me [R]dwell in Your tent forever; Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. [S]Selah. 5For You have heard my vows, O God; You have given me the inheritance of those who fear Your name. 6You will [T]prolong the king's [U]life; His years will be as many generations. 7He will [V]abide before God forever; Appoint lovingkindness and truth that they may preserve him. 8So I will sing praise to Your name forever, That I may pay my vows day by day.
