To the chief musician upon Neginah, A psalm of David.
1 HEarken o God, unto my cry,
unto my pray’r attend.
2 When my heart is opprest, I’ll cry
to thee from the earth’s end.
Doe thou me lead unto the rock
that higher is then I.
3 For thou my hiding-place, hast been
strong Fort from th’ enemy.
4 Within thy Tabernacle I
for ever will abide,
within the covert of thy wings
I’ll seek myself to hide. Selah.
5 For thou o God, hast heard the vows
that I to thee have past:
their heritage that fear thy name
to me thou given hast.
6 Thou to the days of the Kings life
wilt make addition:
his years as generation,
7 Before the face of the strong God
he shall abide for aye:
do thou mercy and truth prepare
that him preserve they may.
8 So then I will unto thy name
sing praise perpetually,
that I the vows which I have made
may pay continually.
