Psalm 61. Exaudi, Deus.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Eleventh Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. HEAR my crying, O God, *
    give ear unto my prayer.
  2. From the ends of the earth will I call upon thee, *
    when my heart is in heaviness.
  3. O set me up upon the rock that is higher than I; *
    for thou hast been my hope, and a strong tower for me against the enemy.
  4. I will dwell in thy tabernacle for ever, *
    and my trust shall be under the covering of thy wings.
  5. For thou, O Lord, hast heard my desires, *
    and hast given an heritage unto those that fear thy Name.
  6. Thou shalt grant the King a long life, *
    that his years may endure throughout all generations.
  7. He shall dwell before God for ever: *
    O prepare thy loving mercy and faithfulness, that they may preserve him.
  8. So will I alway sing praise unto thy Name, *
    that I may daily perform my vows.
