Book II
Confidence in God’s Protection
For the Chief Musician; on a stringed instrument. A Psalm of David.
[1]  HEAR my cry, O God;
Attend unto my prayer.
[2]  From the end of the earth will I call unto thee, when my heart is 1 overwhelmed:
Lead me to the 2 rock that is higher than I.
[3]  For thou hast been a refuge for me,
A strong tower from the enemy.
[4]  I will dwell in thy tabernacle 3 for ever:
I will take refuge in the covert of they wings.  [Selah
[5]  For thou, O God, hast heard my vows:
Thou hast given 4 me the heritage of those that fear thy name.
[6]  Thou wilt prolong the king’s life;
His years shall be as many generations.
[7]  He shall abide before God for ever:
Oh prepare lovingkindness and truth, that they may preserve him.
[8]  So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever,
That I may daily perform my vows.
