For the Chief Musician. For a stringed instrument. By David.

61:1 Hear my cry, God.
Listen to my prayer.

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

a strong tower from the enemy.

61:4 I will dwell in your tent forever.
I will take refuge in the shelter of your wings.

You have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.

61:6 You will prolong the kingís life;
his years shall be for generations.

Appoint your loving kindness and truth, that they may preserve him.

that I may fulfill my vows daily.
