1 Hear my cry, O God; ¶ listen to my prayer.
2 From the ends of the earth I call to you, ¶ I call as my heart grows faint; ¶ lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.
4 I long to dwell in your tent forever ¶ and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. [^1]
5 For you, God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Increase the days of the king's life, ¶ his years for many generations.
7 May he be enthroned in God's presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
8 Then I will ever sing in praise of your name ¶ and fulfill my vows day after day.
