The King James Version Bible

Psalms 61:1-8

  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.
