1: (To the chief Musician. On a stringed instrument. [A Psalm] of David.) Hear, O God, my cry; attend unto my prayer. 2: From the end of the earth will I call unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: thou wilt lead me on to a rock which is too high for me. 3: For thou hast been a refuge for me, a strong tower from before the enemy. 4: I will sojourn in thy tent for ever; I will take refuge in the covert of thy wings. Selah. 5: For thou, O God, hast heard my vows; thou hast given [me] the inheritance of those that fear thy name. 6: Thou wilt add days to the days of the king: his years shall be as many generations. 7: He shall abide before God for ever: bestow loving-kindness and truth, that they may preserve him. 8: So will I sing forth thy name for ever, performing my vows from day to day.
