1  O hear my urgent cry, my God,
and listen to my plea.
2  From earth’s remotest bounds I call
when my heart faints in me.

O God, conduct me to the rock
that’s higher far than I.
3  For you’re my refuge from the foe,
my tower of strength on high.

4  O let me dwell within your tent,
for ever there to live!
O for the shelter of your wings,
the refuge which they give!

5  For you have heard my vows,
O God, and you have given me
The heritage of those who fear
your name continually.

6  Prolong the days the king will live;
his sovereign rule extend
For many generations more,
established without end.

7  May he for ever sit as king
enthroned before God’s face;
Appoint your love and faithfulness
as his protecting grace.

8 Then will I ever bless your name
with songs of joy and praise,
And will fulfil my holy vows
with care throughout my days.
