1 Give ear, O GOD, to my loud cry,
and to my pray'r attend;
As from the corners of the earth,
my cries to Thee ascend.
2 And now my heart is overwhelm'd,
ready to fail and die,
O lead me up into the rock,
that Higher is than I.

3 For in my danger Thou hast been,
a shelter safe to me;
A tow'r of strength and sure defence
against my enemy.
4 Within thy tabernacle I,
for ever will abide;
And in the covert of thy wings
will trust and safely hide. (Selah.)

5 For Thou, O GOD, hast heard my vows
as they before Thee came;
And gav'st me an inheritance,
with those who fear thy name.
6 O wilt Thou give this to the King,
yet many days to see;
To many generations let
his years prolonged be.

7 Let him before the face of GOD,
for evermore remain;
And let benignity and truth,
secure his happy reign.
8 So will I ever to thy name
sing grateful songs of praise;
And chearfully perform my vows
thro' all my future days.
