Psalm 61

Lead Me to the Rock

For the choir director. On a stringed instrument. Of David.

Hear my cry of lamentation, O God;
Give heed to my prayer.
From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For You have been a refuge for me,
A tower of strength before the enemy.
Let me sojourn in Your tent forever;
Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Selah.

For You, O God, have heard my vows;
You have given me the inheritance of those who fear Your name.
You will add days to the king’s life;
His years will be from generation to generation.
He will sit enthroned before God forever;
Appoint lovingkindness and truth that they may guard him.
So I will sing praise to Your name forever,
As I pay my vows day by day.
