Prayer of the King in Time of Danger

For the leader; with stringed instruments. Of David.

Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer!

From the brink of Sheol I call; my heart grows faint.

Raise me up, set me on a rock, for you are my refuge, a tower of strength against the foe.

Then I will ever dwell in your tent, take refuge in the shelter of your wings.

O God, when you accept my vows and hear the plea of those who revere your name in prayer: "Add to the days of the king's life; may his years be many generations; May he reign before God forever; may your love and fidelity preserve him."

Then I will sing your name forever, fulfill my vows day after day.
