1: To the Overseer, on stringed instruments. -- By David. Hear, O God, my loud cry, attend to my prayer. 2: From the end of the land unto Thee I call, In the feebleness of my heart, Into a rock higher than I Thou dost lead me. 3: For Thou hast been a refuge for me, A tower of strength because of the enemy. 4: I sojourn in Thy tent to the ages, I trust in the secret place of Thy wings. Selah. 5: For Thou, O God, hast hearkened to my vows, Thou hast appointed the inheritance Of those fearing Thy name. 6: Days to the days of the king Thou addest, His years as generation and generation. 7: He dwelleth to the age before God, Kindness and truth appoint -- they keep him. 8: So do I praise Thy name for ever, When I pay my vows day by day!
