Morning Psalm

Psalm 61

Hear my cry, O God, *
and listen to my prayer. 
I call upon you from the ends of the earth
with heaviness in my heart; *
set me upon the rock that is higher than I. 
For you have been my refuge, *
a strong tower against the enemy. 
I will dwell in your house for ever; *
I will take refuge under the cover of your wings. 
For you, O God, have heard my vows; *
you have granted me the heritage of those who fear your Name. 
Add length of days to the king's life; *
let his years extend over many generations. 
Let him sit enthroned before God for ever; *
bid love and faithfulness watch over him. 
So will I always sing the praise of your Name, *
and day by day I will fulfill my vows.
