61 For the leader. With stringed instruments. By David:
2 Hear my cry, God;
listen to my prayer.
3 From the end of the earth, with fainting heart,
I call out to you.
Set me down on a rock
far above where I am now.
4 For you have been a refuge for me,
a tower of strength in the face of the foe.
5 I will live in your tent forever
and find refuge in the shelter of your wings. (Selah)
6 For you, God, have heard my vows;
you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
7 Prolong the life of the king!
May his years go on for many generations.
8 May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever!
Appoint grace and truth to preserve him!
9 Then I will sing praise to your name forever,
as day after day I fulfill my vows.
