Psalm 61



1. Listen to my cry and hear me;
God, be near me.
In your mercy heed my prayers.
When I call from far-off places,
God, be gracious,
for my heart is faint with cares.

2. LORD, with your support provide me;
safely guide me
to the rock for me too high.
You, my refuge and my tower,
showed your power
when my enemies drew nigh.

3. Keep me in your tent forever.
Leave me never!
God of grace, to you I cling.
Shield me with your love and favour,
O my Saviour,
in the shelter of your wings.

4. When I made my vows, you heard me;
you reward me
with the heritage of those
who on bended knee adore you
and before you
in your steadfast love repose.

5. Show your love: the king’s life lengthen
and him strengthen.
May his reign go on and on.
Richly bless all his endeavour;
let him ever
sit before you on his throne.

6. Be, O God of might and splendour,
his defender,
and your steadfast love display.
Then will I, your name professing,
for your blessing
thank you with my vows each day.
