Webster Bible Translation
Hear My Cry; Listen to My Prayer
1To the chief Musician upon Neginah, A Psalm of David. Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer.
2From the end of the earth will I cry to thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
4I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
5For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.
6Thou wilt 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 thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
