ContextHear My Cry; Listen to My Prayer
1Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. 2From the end of the earth will I cry to you, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 3For you have been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. 4I will abide in your tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of your wings. Selah. 5For you, O God, have heard my vows: you have given me the heritage of those that fear your name. 6You will prolong the king's life: and his years as many generations. 7He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him. 8So will I sing praise to your name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
