Psalm 61 - 1st Version
SALZBURG | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
J. Michael Haydn, 1737-1806
1 O GOD, give ear unto my cry;
Unto my prayer attend.
2 From the utmost corner of the land
My cry to thee I'll send.
What time my heart is overwhelmed,
And in perplexity,
Do thou me lead unto the Rock
That higher is than I.
3 For thou hast for my refuge been
A shelter by thy power;
And for defence against my foes
Thou hast been a strong tower.
4 Within thy tabernacle I
For ever will abide;
And under covert of thy wings
With confidence me hide.
5 For thou the vows that I did make,
O Lord, my God, didst hear:
Thou hast given me the heritage
Of those thy name that fear.
6 A life prolonged for many days
Thou to the king shalt give;
As many generations are
The years which he shall live.
7 He in God's presence his abode
For evermore shall have;
O do thou truth and mercy both
Prepare, that may him save.
8 And so will I perpetually
Sing praise unto thy name;
That having made my vows, I may
Each day perform the same.
