Psalm 61
International Standard VersionEnglish Standard Version
1God, hear my cry; pay attention to my prayer.1Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer;
2From the end of the earth I will cry to you whenever my heart is overwhelmed. Place me on the rock that's too high for me.2from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I,
3For you have been a refuge for me, a tower of strength before the enemy.3for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.
4Let me make my home in your tent forever; let me hide under the shelter of your wings. Interlude4Let me dwell in your tent forever! Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah
5For you, God, have heard my promises; you have assigned to me the heritage of those who fear your name.5For you, O God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6Add day after day to the king's life; may his years continue for many generations.6Prolong the life of the king; may his years endure to all generations!
7May he be enthroned before God forever; Appoint your gracious love and truth to guard him.7May he be enthroned forever before God; appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!
8So I will sing songs to your name forever; I will fulfill my promises day by day.8So will I ever sing praises to your name, as I perform my vows day after day.
