Ps61

A cry for help

For the director of music. A psalm of David to be played on stringed instruments.

God, hear my cry for help.
      Listen to my prayer.
 

2 From a place far away I call out to you.
      I call out as my heart gets weaker.
      Lead me to the safety of a rock that is high above me.
 

3 You have always kept me safe from my enemies.
      You are like a strong tower to me.

 4 I long to live in your holy tent forever.
      There I find safety in the shadow of your wings.
                         Selah

 5 God, you have heard my promises.
      You have given me what belongs to those who worship you.

 6 Add many days to the king’s life.
      Let him live on and on for many years.

 7 May he always enjoy your blessing as he rules.
      Let your love and truth keep him safe.

 8 Then I will always sing praise to you.
      I will keep my promises day after day.
