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.

Psalm 61 (YLT)

[1] Hear, O God, my loud cry, attend to my prayer.
[2] From the end of the land unto Thee I call, In the feebleness of my heart, Into a rock higher than I Thou dost lead me.
[3] For Thou hast been a refuge for me, A tower of strength because of the enemy.
[4] I sojourn in Thy tent to the ages, I trust in the secret place of Thy wings. Selah.
[5] For Thou, O God, hast hearkened to my vows, Thou hast appointed the inheritance Of those fearing Thy name.
[6] Days to the days of the king Thou addest, His years as generation and generation.
[7] He dwelleth to the age before God, Kindness and truth appoint-they keep him.
[8] So do I praise Thy name for ever, When I pay my vows day by day!
