To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. Of David. Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; 2
from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, 3
for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy. 4
Let me dwell in your tent forever! Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah 5
For you, O God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name. 6
Prolong the life of the king; may his years endure to all generations! 7
May he be enthroned forever before God; appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him! 8
So will I ever sing praises to your name, as I perform my vows day after day.
