1: Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. 2: From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 3: For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. 4: I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah. 5: For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name. 6: Thou wilt prolong the king's life: and his years as many generations. 7: He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him. 8: So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
