To the leader: with stringed instruments.
Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. 2 From the end of the earth I call to you, when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I; 3 for you are my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.
4 Let me abide in your tent forever, find refuge under the shelter of your wings. Selah 5 For you, O God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Prolong the life of the king; may his years endure to all generations! 7 May he be enthroned forever before God; appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!
8 So I will always sing praises to your name, as I pay my vows day after day.
