1 For the Chief Musician. For a stringed instrument. By David.Hear my cry, God.Listen to my prayer.

2 From the end of the earth, I will call to you, when my heart is overwhelmed.Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

3 For you have been a refuge for me,a strong tower from the enemy.

4 I will dwell in your tent forever.I will take refuge in the shelter of your wings.Selah.

5 For you, God, have heard my vows.You have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.

6 You will prolong the king's life;his years shall be for generations.

7 He shall be enthroned in God's presence forever.Appoint your loving kindness and truth, that they may preserve him.

8 So I will sing praise to your name forever,that I may fulfill my vows daily.
