Psalm 61 (WEBP)

[1] Hear my cry, God. Listen to my prayer.
[2] From the end of the earth, I will call to you when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
[3] For you have been a refuge for me, a strong tower from the enemy.
[4] I will dwell in your tent forever. I will take refuge in the shelter of your wings. Selah.
[5] For you, God, have heard my vows. You have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
[6] You will prolong the king’s life. His years will be for generations.
[7] He shall be enthroned in God’s presence forever. Appoint your loving kindness and truth, that they may preserve him.
[8] So I will sing praise to your name forever, that I may fulfill my vows daily.
