Confidence in God's Protection.
For the choir director; on a stringed instrument. A Psalm of David.
1 Hear R1799 my cry, O God;
Give R1800 heed to my prayer.
2 From the end R1801 of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint; R1802
Lead me to the R1803 rock that is higher than I.
3 For You have been a refuge R1804 for me,
A tower R1805 of strength against F582 the enemy.
4 Let me dwell R1806 F583 in Your tent forever;
Let me take R1807 refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Selah. F584
5 For You have heard my vows, R1808 O God;
You have given me the inheritance of those who fear R1809 Your name.
6 You will prolong R1810 F585 the king's life; F586
His years will be as many generations.
7 He will abide F587 before R1811 God forever;
Appoint lovingkindness R1812 and truth that they may preserve him.
8 So I will sing R1813 praise to Your name forever,
That I may pay R1814 my vows day by day.
