Psalm 61

Julie Tennent

1Hear my cry, O God my Savior, listen to my prayer below;
2From the ends of earth I call You, as my heart grows faint and low. 
Lead me to the rock that’s higher than I am, or e’er could go;
3You have been my constant refuge, a strong tow’r against the foe.

4How I long to dwell with You, God, in Your tent forevermore; 
And take refuge in the shelter of Your wings amidst the storm.
5For You’ve heard the vows I’ve made, God, and You’ve given unto me 
the inheritance of all who fear Your name so faithfully.

6Now increase the days the king lives; generations his years be.
7May he be enthroned forever, in God’s presence gloriously.
Send Your love and faithful mercy to protect him all his days;
8Then I will fulfill my vows and to Your name always sing praise.
