Psalm 61


[Recommended tunes: Salzburg, Gloucester, Harington, Old 44th]



To the chief Musician upon Neginoth, A Psalm of David. 


1O God, give ear unto my cry;

unto my pray'r attend.

2From th' utmost corner of the land

my cry to thee I'll send.

What time my heart is overwhelm'd,

and in perplexity,

Do thou me lead unto the Rock

that higher is than I.


3For thou hast for my refuge been

a shelter by thy pow'r;

And for defence against my foes

thou hast been a strong tow'r.

4Within thy tabernacle I

for ever will abide;

And under covert of thy wings

with confidence me hide.


5For thou the vows that I did make,

O Lord my God, didst hear:

Thou hast giv'n me the heritage

of those thy name that fear.

6A life prolong'd for many days

thou to the king shalt give;

Like many generations be

the years which he shall live.


7He in God's presence his abode

for evermore shall have:

O do thou truth and mercy both

prepare, that may him save.

8And so will I perpetually

sing praise unto thy name;

That having made my vows, I may

each day perform the same.
