Hear my crying, O God, give ear unto my prayer. From the ends of the earth will I call upon thee, when my heart is in heaviness. 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.
I will dwell in thy tabernacle for ever; and my trust shall be under the covering of thy wings. For thou, O Lord, hast heard my desires, and hast given an heritage unto those that fear thy Name. Thou shalt grant the King a long life, that his years may endure throughout all generations. He shall dwell before God for ever; O prepare thy loving mercy and faithfulness, that they may preserve him.
So will I always sing praise unto thy Name, that I may daily perform my vows.
