Chapter 61

1)Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.

2)From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

3)For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.

4)I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.

5)For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.

6)Thou wilt prolong the king's life: and his years as many generations.

7)He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him.

8)So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
