1 “To the chief musician upon Neginah, by David.” (61:2) Hear, O God, my entreaty; listen to my prayer.
2 (61:3) From the end of the earth will I call unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is too high for me.
3 (61:4) For thou hast been a shelter unto me, a strong tower against the enemy.
4 (61:5) Let me sojourn in thy tent to all eternity; let me be sheltered under the covert of thy wings. Selah.
5 (61:6) For thou, O God, hast truly listened to my vows: thou hast given back the heritage of those that fear thy name.
6 (61:7) Oh, add days unto the king's days: may his years be as of many generations.
7 (61:8) May he abide for ever before God: ordain that kindness and truth may guard him.
8 (61:9) So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may pay my vows day by day.
