Psalm 61
A Soldier's Prayer From the End of the Earth
For the choir director. On a stringed instrument. By David.
A Prayer from the End of the Earth
1Hear my cry, O God.
Pay attention to my prayer.
2From the end of the earth I call to you
when my heart is overwhelmed.
Lead me up on to the rock that is higher than I.
3For you have been a refuge for me,
a tower of strength in the face of the enemy.
4I want to keep living in your tent forever.
I will take refuge under the cover of your wings. Interlude
5For you, God, have heard my vows.
You have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6Add days to the days of the king.
His years will last through all generations.
7Let him be seated in God's presence forever.
Appoint your mercy and truth to protect him.
8Then will I make music to your name forever,
to fulfill my vows day after day.
