For the Chief Musician;
on a stringed instrument.
[A Psalm] of David.
1
Hear my cry, O God;
Attend unto my prayer.
2
From the end of the earth will I call unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3
For thou hast been a refuge for me, A strong tower from the enemy.
4
I will dwell in thy tabernacle for ever: I will take refuge 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;
His years shall be as many generations.
7
He shall abide before God for ever: Oh prepare lovingkindness and truth, that they may preserve him.
8
So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, That I may daily perform my vows.
